State of the Art – It’s still May!
I told myself I wanted to do at least one post per month, if not more. And it’s still May for another few hours, so this totally counts, right? I haven’t been overly active but did manage to finish a few pieces. One started out fine but then went sideways fairly quickly so I ended […]Continue reading
Winter is coming (or I’m not dead yet!)
Or something like that. It was nice here today, but it’s going to be colder by the middle of this coming week. Ugh. Anyways, not been all that busy, but I did manage to complete a postcard for TAE18. This will be the first year I’ve taken part and I’m pretty excited for this. El […]Continue reading
Day 7 – Another Untitled Piece
Nothing much to really say here. I’ve yet again failed to come up with a title but that’s all right. It will let the viewer decide what they like about this painting rather than be influenced by the words I assigned. I’m really enjoying how the violet and turquoise blue look together. Overall very pleased […]Continue reading
Days 4, 5, and 6 – all together now!
So in my usual timely fashion, I’m behind on posting my daily paintings. I have such good intentions, but then my book and comfy chair downstairs tempt me when I get home from work. Tonight I was ambitious though! Days 4 and 5 are sibling paintings, in that they started out life as one larger […]Continue reading
Day 3 – Tidal
Unlike yesterday’s painting, the title for Day 3 came to when I was almost done. I had been planning to do something for my Layers series in my usual greens and turquoise blue, but I ended up putting a bit of a twist in there. As the green layers were drying, I had the impression […]Continue reading
Day 2 – Mist
When trying to think of names for my paintings, I usually come up blank (and I’ll probably name one of my pieces “Blank” one of these days). Sometimes, nothing comes to me when looking at the piece. Sometimes though, a name just pops into my head and in some cases, it sticks even if the […]Continue reading
Happy New Year!
Here’s to another great year of fun and creativity! I’ve decided to start off 2016 with another 30-in-30 Painting Challenge, once again hosted by Leslie Saeta on her blog. It’s exciting to be one of hundreds of artists taking part. Here is my piece for Day 1. It started out as a planned piece to […]Continue reading
New Art? What’s that you say?
Yes, I come bearing new art. Of course, it’s only new because I’ve taken so long to finally get it posted here, but let’s not quibble about minor details, all right? And I’ve been trying to get back into doodling some more, to kickstart my brain somewhat but it’s sadly not working. Everything I try […]Continue reading
September 30-in-30 Challenge – Wrap-up and Summary
So the September 30-in-30 Painting Challenge hosted by Leslie Saeta has ended and I managed to do 25/30 paintings for the month. That’s not too bad, actually, considering I had a mild art block in the middle of the month and then life happened for a bit there. I really did want to do the […]Continue reading
