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.


Gold Creek w/Plein Rein Painters

Today the Plein Rein Painters went to Juneau's own Cope Park
to paint the turquoise rushing waters of Gold Creek.

My painting didn't turn out anything like I thought it would.
I was too stingy with my paint, and/but I didn't want to "cover up" the creek with vegetation.
I need to remember to "paint like a millionaire"!
(David Mollett quote from a Juneau workshop a few years ago.)

It is really hard to simplify the scene.

Here is Jay painting me, painting. 
He has such a great energy in his acrylic paintings.

Yes, I am working on my K River project, too!
