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.


30in30 - Day 12

Best Apple (in my opinion)

Small sketch

in progress, before the apple colors

My Fav - Gravenstein!         5 x 6 inches        Oil on Arches Oil Paper
This color is very harsh, not sure why. The painting doesn't look quite as bright as this.

This is what it looks like on the easel.

This was a knife painting, except for the sig.

If you have never tasted a Gravenstein apple, I feel so sorry for you. They make the best pies and applesauce in the whole world.
I can't believe there aren't very many around any more.

I brought a bunch (enough for a pie!!!) home, so I need to make a crust pretty soon. They are awaiting their demise in my refrigerator!

Make sure to stop by Leslie Saeta's Blog to see all of the 30in30 paintings.
Note: There were over 1000 people signed up, but I have been noticing that "only" between 200 and 400 post each day ...

Thanks for keeping up. Please stay tuned!

Hmm ... I'll have to look out for that variety, I'm not familiar with it. I'm enjoying doing fruits & veg for the 30 in 30 too, great only having to go as far as the kitchen to find something to paint!

Donna, the Gravenstein is so good. I do wonder if you find anyone in your neck of the woods who knows it?
