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.


Plover - day 2

Ok, I haven't put too much paint on yet, but here it is so far.

While painting I have been noticing how beautiful Matt's carving lines are!

I have been studying some of the other decoy painters. (Matt has several books.) 
I am intrigued. 
It will be an adventure to paint this bird!

Oh ... here is the underneath.

and the top ...

Matt's website, Workingbirdsdecoys, while still under construction, will give you a hint of some of the work that he does.

Going out with the Plein Rein painters tomorrow and 
I will report here on how my painting(s) turn out. 
Also, if given permission, will post a few other plein-air painters with their work as well!

Cross your fingers for no rain!
