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.


Sunshine Cove + Gesso-ing

The other day my friend Barbara (Be) and I went out to a quiet little place called Sunshine Cove. 
We painted. Here are a couple of shots of that day.

 My start.

 Be's start. (She just received her regular, non-transition glasses so she can see her paint colors when we go to Colorado to attend our plein air painting workshop.) I will try to blog about that as it happens in June.

I have been reading Show Your Work! and will talk about the next chapter tomorrow, if there is time (Be and I are going painting).

These final photos are of the gesso going on the three canvases for the big triptych! 
I will use at least two or three more coats of gesso.
