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.


Share something small each day

Chapter 3 - Show Your Work!
"Share something small every day"

Ha, well I strive to do this, but obviously I don't do it every day. 
Life gets in the way.
And that is ok!

A.K. says if you put yourself and your work "out there" you will meet some amazing people. 
I know! 
Somehow people find this blog and when they comment, 
I am so excited that someone saw it - it is amazing. 
('Cept for the spammers, I don't get so excited about them.)

I'm participating in the Every Day in May sketching group on Facebook (hereafter abbrev as fb). There is also a group on Flickr
The artists in this group are generous, talented and fun! They comment and "like" and even though I don't "know" them -
(well I sort of know a couple of them, because they are in Juneau) 
- we are in a cohort.

A.K. says that what form you choose to share doesn't matter, everyone chooses the most comfortable method for them. He says that a daily (or weekly, whatever ...) "dispatch" is like watching and "listening to the director's commentary while the movie is being made." He has a little flow chart to self-determine if something should be shared, and "it is not a diary"!
There are so many gems in this little book, that I could go on and on, but I will reign it in and let you discover more if you get the book.

Meanwhile, work on the triptych studies goes on, this is the second one finished:

Thank you for checking in - sharing is fun ... try it!

Thanks, Sue. I am excited and a bit nervous about painting the large triptych!

Chris Lally said...

I am inspired by your words and your beautiful triptych! Thank you, Teri!

Oh Chris - thanks so much! It will be most interesting for me (and slightly terrifying) to blog about the large "real" triptych!! Preparing to stretch my canvases and gesso and get going.
