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.


The one that got away

I also painted this one day:

3/4-inch Minus     Oil on panel    23.75 x 17.75 inches

... and entered it into the juried show. 
It was not chosen but that's ok, 
I think I will put it in our group show in March 
... YIKES, March will be here very soon!

The frame is black, about 2 inches and made by my husband!!

Thank you, Matt!
 (this is just the first of many thank-you's because there will be more frames, etc to be made!)

Cheers everyone ... keep on painting!

Hi Teri - I find this painting very powerful. I think it is the way you used the interlocking shapes that grabs my attention.
Lucky you having a hubby who makes frames.

What a beauty! Love the strong color palette. A black frame sounds perfect!

Julie, I am so grateful to hear what someone else thinks about this piece before it truly is out in public ... and yes, I truly am lucky to have my own woodworker! Thanks so much.

Thanks Chris - I also just loved those colors ... the orangey one is that new Azo Coral from M. Graham (http://mgraham.com/announcing_azo_coral_oil_color/) and along with a blue (I think it was Pthalo Blue) I couldn't resist.
