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 19

Eggs & Ceramic Bowl

Yikes, I am very late posting this, but it will still be on the 19th day of the challenge. 
And for those of you who forgot what my theme was ... it is "Stuff In My Refrigerator".

Everyone has painted or drawn eggs as an exercise: making an image look 3D, or not using line, working on value, shadows, etc. - yes? 
So, these were in my refrig. I love the little bowl. I made it a few years ago. It has the most beautiful lapis lazuli blue glaze inside that inspired the whole painting.

Today Leslie's post was that she loves flea markets (her theme is '30 Things You Don't Know About Her').  I love to go to them as well, but there are no such things here in little Juneau. We have thrift/resale shops and garage sales - that's it.

Cheers and thanks for viewing my art!
