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.


Plunging in -

- to what feels like uncertain waters.
I guess that's the nature of artistic endeavors sometimes ...

I'm beginning work on a small commission; it will be a fun challenge!  

Also working on a small - for now - body of work about bodies!

Here is the progression for the first "body" painting from this photo 
(and grid) from a video screenshot:

Charcoal sketch

 I used a dark gray gesso for this one.

This shows completed charcoal sketch
 set with an alcohol wash.

Shoulder Press         8 x 8 inches     oil on canvas

The gal's wrist in the photo was not demonstrating good form,
so of course I had to correct that. I took a photo of my own hand holding a dumbbell.

Thank you so much for viewing my art.
Happy June 1st!
