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.


Kaloko Honokohau National Historical Park

The Kaloko Honokohau National Historical Park is not too far away from Kailua, and a beautiful place, very meaningful for native Hawaiians, and everyone!

We spent several hours here. It is the first time I have ever plein-air painted in my swim suit! 
(There will be NO photos of me painting, unless major cropping is done.)

Anyway, here is the initial sketch ...

 yes ... I put some words in the sketch to help me remember what was what ...

Here is the setting. We set the bestbrella up but didn't really need it. It was there in case the sun dappled through the leaves and onto the palette or panel.

Here is my beginning. Perhaps tomorrow I will be able to post the rest.

Meanwhile today is Thanksgiving.

I wish all of you the best Thanksgiving ever! I am thankful for all of my family and friends far and wide AND so thankful I am able to paint.
