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 26


 It is the 26th day of the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge 
with my personal theme of Stuff In My Refrigerator.

I made kimchi exactly a week ago, a really good healthy kind. No monosodium glutamate. No sugar except for fruit and we tried it last night because I had to open the jar so I could get a start on today's painting.

It is amazing! I love it!

You can see the difference here between the charcoal sketch (top) and the alcohol wash. It is really fun to do the wash ... kind of like watercolor!

Leslie's post today is a palette knife painted pumpkin. Quite gorgeous. 
She has an average of 600 trick-or-treaters for Halloween! 
We do not get any because we live right smack on a busy highway 
and our community hosts a Halloween party for the kids so they don't have to go out 
(it more often than not is raining like crazy at the end of October). 

Leslie asks, "What are you doing for Halloween this year?" and truth be told, we will be in our hotel getting ready to fly to Kona on November 1!

Who else loves kimchi? Who else makes it?

Thank you for hanging in with me!

ps I have NO IDEA what I will find in the fridge to paint for tomorrow and the next 3 days!
