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.


Rainy Day! Plover day!

Plein Rein painters did not go out today, 
although I went to our Saturday meeting place and was totally ready to go! 
I decided not to go by myself. 
It was quite nasty with wind AND rain this morning, but I was ready to go!

 So I painted on this little guy. Inside. Dry and warm.
I have never done anything like this before and it was very interesting challenging.
Looking at the real thing, my paint job is rather stylized, but not simplistic.

It is almost like the transition between the non-breeding to the breeding plumage.
I enjoyed it. Maybe Matt (my husband) will let me paint another bird one day!

Today a lady wrote to Matt and said she wanted to buy a decoy carving! 
She lives in Massachusetts!! 
She found more of his work at WorkingBirdsDecoys and you also can check it out. He will be working on his website - or at least his "associate" 
will be working to develop his website in the near future.

Thanks for viewing this little blog.
