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 16

In my refrigerator, this little tube of tomato paste by Amore caught my eye, so here it is!

Little boring sketch ...

... and then my husband popped his head in the studio and said, 
are you gonna take the cap off and have the paste oozing out? 
So I sketched that and thought I would give it a go.

I only remembered to take one progress photo ... this even after I said to myself, "self, don't forget to stop and take a photo or two."

Amore - tomato paste      6 x 8 inches     Oil on Arches Oil Paper

Did you realize how many pastes this company makes? This tomato paste in a tube,  Pomodoro Amore in un tubo, is very handy to have on hand 
in case you want to make pizza sauce, marinade, curry, etc.

Pears are quite fun and luscious to paint with a knife, it's true!

Although this painting was NOT done with a knife, it was fun to do.

Thanks for viewing my art!
