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.


Juneau, Alaska's Thane Beach plein-air

Well I forgot that I was supposed to post this yesterday, but no one complained,
so here are the sketches and photos from the morning (about 2 hours).

Thumbnail sketch below - quite horrible but it helps me get my bearings.

It was a sunny, not too windy day.

Got my Bestbrella up!

I got this thing home and noticed many things wrong, 
so I did finish it in the studio. I think it is finished anyway...
Not sure why the cropped version didn't load...tried it twice.

The rusty roofed building in the middle ground is an old warehouse 
associated with one of the Juneau gold mines.
