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.


Wiseman, Alaska Old Post Office plein-air painting

Weather in the Brooks Range was rainy the day after we drove up the Haul Road to Galbraith Lake and so was the next and the next ...

... so we went back to Fairbanks.

But before we left I did have the chance to begin a painting sketch of
 the old Wiseman Post Office.

In the rain. (reminded us of SE Alaska...)

I made a sketch, it is not as small as a thumbnail but serves as one.

5 x 8 inches

If you look closely you will see the raindrops!

The painting will have to be finished in the studio, 
or maybe I will take it back up with me when we go to Wiseman next summer?
