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.

The study sketch, using white pastel pencil on the black gesso ...

... and then adding a little oil paint.
For some reason, I love doing paintings on black.

Like this one, for ex:

Tamarind & Pear  

from November 2011 while I was in Wyoming.
 6 x 8 inches, oil on black pastel board.

And this one (same size) that sold at my Silverbow Gallery show:

We Are Persimmons
