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.


February Daisies still life painting

This painting is finished 
and has a new home - (thank you Cheri!)

I wanted to show you how the progression, well ... progressed!
It began like this. 
I had a Masonite board that I painted with some abstract shapes:

I had a very nice bouquet of daisies and Alstroemeria (Peruvian Lily).

February Daisies     Oil on Masonite      18 x 12 inches

Matt made my frame. 
I put an Ebony stain with some red paint splotched on the inner portion:

I am very happy with the result.

Thanks for checking in and viewing my art!

Wow ! I love this colourful floral painting. To see the progress was very interesting too?

To answer your question about the watersoluble oils, I used Windsor and Newton Artisan. I also recommend using the Artisan thinner as well in spread of just plain tap water. The paints work much better. I used a quick drying medium too, also by W&N artisan, but I mixed a lot of thinner with it because it is very think. Hope that helps !
