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.


Very Personal Commission - Fini

Of course each commission we do is personal. 
This one is more so. 
Because of the relationship, the requests, the colors, the feeling ... the ease.

This is the painting at last post. The white-ish foreground too bright.

With the bright and green tones scaled down
and seen through a light grayish tint ... 
 the original background still resonates.

Why wasn't there a shadow by the nectarine painting? 

Ok, much better.

For Karen    oil on panel   12 x 8 inches

What does it mean, say the words, that the earth is so beautiful? 
And what shall I do about it? 
What is the gift that I should bring to the world? What is the life that I should live? 
 - Mary Oliver

(Thank you Karen!)
