Welcome! This blog began as an assignment in a digital art class. That was in 2008. I decided to keep it going as my art journal. It is fascinating for me to see how a painting develops, so this is where I post my painting progressions and exciting new things I find on creative blogs and websites. I hope you will learn along with me about painting, drawing and all kinds of art.


Plein Rein Painters - Retreat continued

5" x 7"  oil on prepared board

Both of these oil sketches are variations of one of the views out the window 
of the Jubilee Cabin at the Shrine of St. Therese, 
Juneau, Alaska, where we gathered for the painting retreat.

8" x 10"  water miscible oil on paper
This painted sketch is on Arches paper for oil!

I have been continuing to experiment with the water soluble oils and thought, 
for the lower painting that I could sort of do a wash with a vermillion color and
then go over it with something else...alas, it was warm and the paint dried quickly.
The painting looks more like a sunset, or maybe a sunrise?

I am heading back to Wyoming tomorrow, so will not be able to post 
(unless I have a long layover somewhere).
