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.


Updates about paintings and such ...


It was about this time of year in 2014 when I painted this on the beach over on the mainland.

Beach @ Thane   (SOLD)     10 x 8 inches    oil on prepared panel
But ... apparently I had forgotten to post this final Beach@Thane Juneau, AK plein air painting 
(which was the January 2015 Plein Rein Calendar pick)!

This I discovered when looking back at the blog, 
trying to keep track of paintings in my Tapforms thingy.

 Also -
Gruening Cabin Beach + Fisherwoman   (SOLD)   oil on linen panel    8 x 10 inches
 - this painting is currently the May image for the Plein Rein calendar for this year! Just thought I'd update you on this one, while I was at it.

I will post again soon ... lots going on - 


We have a new kitty!

Her name is Artemisia.

Thank you for checking in.
Stay tuned ...
