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.

Next thumbnail (2.5" square pencil sketch).

and the 6 x 6 sketch on black gesso:

I tape the Arches oil paper to a board;
you can see bits of the blue tape at the edges of this photo.

I'm painting these studies on Arches oil paper because
I can cut it to whatever size I want and it's light and easy to handle and store.

This painting will have a far background and a close foreground -
 it might be hard to do the middle ground ... we will see!

Thanks for viewing my blog and keep checking in to see the progressions!

(... and you might wonder who this is ...)
