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.


Virtual Paintout, June 2013 - The Azores


 Street View - a lake in the Azores    oil on prepared panel    5" x 7"

is on one of nine Azore islands in the North Atlantic west of Lisbon, Portugal. 
My favorite part of this painting is the lady with her arm outstretched like Lewis and Clark.

I haven't submitted this to the virtual paintout, yet. 
This painting is on a panel that had some acrylic base paint of test colors. 
I just painted over the top with white gesso and that is the ground for this little painting.
Not quite sure it works, 
but I can tell you that it looks much better in person than in a photo.
