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.


Painting Exhibit! "10 Easels" - paintings by me

I am excited for my mini-painting exhibit at the GCI store
 in downtown Juneau tomorrow for April First Friday!

Thanks to my friend Dru
and my husband, Matt.
 He made most of the frames for my paintings. He is awesome!

I will have a WIP (work-in-progress) painting sitting
on my pochade box.

The show is titled "10 Easels" because it really is not a gallery space; the shop has
10 easels on which I will set my paintings.

The show goes for 2.5 hours and that is it ... from 4pm to 6:30pm.

The photo below shows the beginnings of the WIP studio painting.
I am using a photo from a friend as reference.

You have to look closely to see it but I used some Golden Light Molding Paste
to add some texture to the gessoed canvas. There is always (for me) a question about
how it will work, how it will look .... so we will see.

 This next progress photo shows placing some dark oil paint on the canvas.

Stay tuned ... and I hope those of you who live in Juneau
will stop by tomorrow and say hi.

Thanks for checking in to my art blog!
