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.


Kekaha Kai

After organizing & food shopping, Matt and I drove North to Kekaha Kai State Park, on the island of Hawaii. I set up my easel and did a small sketch and then painted a little 8 x 10 study.

Here is the sketch:

Painting under way:

I used a board that I gessoed with black! Perfect for lava! Ugh ... I forgot my good painting knife back at the condo. This is a silly plastic one I use sometimes for various things.

 It was very windy out there today, plus we were right smack under the flight path for the airport. So, not too peaceful - but it was beautiful and warm.
