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.


JAHC Gallery Show 7th of 11 paintings

This abstract painting was one of those, 
"I would like to use THIS beautiful color in this painting" 
which is Azo Coral by M Graham
- and so it happened.

I don't have any progress shots of this one ...

Overflow       2016  Oil on canvas panel    10 x 8 inches

... but I do have a photo of it in the frame.

Black frame with an incised line painted iridescent greenish gold.
Overflow has a new home with my friend and fellow artist, who is in this group show with me:

  Timi Johnson (that link is her website) - 
because we made an artist trade! 

I have her wonderful painting, "Rise"  - below:

Rise      2017  Timi Johnson   Oil on panel   4 x 4 inches

This is magnificent in b & w as well!

Here is the painting in its frame (made by my hubby) but the frame design was by Timi:


Thank you Timi!

And thank you to everyone who are following along on the art blog journey,
I appreciate it so much!
