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.


Day 9 - 30 Paintings in January

How many of you have painted from memory? 
The first time I tried, I was in a Marc Hanson Workshop, June 2015.
I hated disliked it (intensely).
BUT - 
I think it is good to do and I shall do it more. Maybe even on this challenge - yikes. 

"The development of the power of seeing 
and the power to retain in the memory that which is essential 
and to make record and thus test out 
how true the seeing and the memory have been 
is the way to happiness." 
- Robert Henri

9:45 am Juneau    8 x 6 inches    oil on Arches Huile Paper

Love that Henri quote. Strive for that happiness guys ... and happy painting!
