25th Week

This blog is about a commitment to my art and myself to paint every day with no exception.  Posts will be weekly or biweekly to show the results of my efforts.

Since I have only been painting for in short intervals of time, I went back to some of the smaller paintings I started a while ago. It is a very different process. Looking at them while doing other work through out the day then I am able to see what to do next. I am not working form a photograph, just my imagination and happenstance.

19th Week, Daily Painting Surprises

This blog is about a commitment to my art and myself to paint every day with no exception.  Posts will be weekly or biweekly to show the results of my efforts.

This website is coming up the first anniversary, here at square space. It took me a while to start writing this blog.  Painting daily made it easier to post. It is about the process not the finished product. Finishing a painting does happen a lot fast too, a benefit.  The aspect that is surprising about painting daily is when I dare myself or set up a rule. One of my rules was to use only the leftover colors and a palette knife.  Happy accidents can occur to take me out of my habits.

I worked on softening the contrasts and breaking up some of the diagonal.
