Welcome to my art blog.

This is where you'll find some of the things I'm trying to accomplish... a little of this and that. Paintings, photography, collage and sewing...every artful endeavor helps me keep my sanity in this mixed up world.

Daily Paintworks

I've just successfully added Daily Paintworks to the places my artwork can be viewed and/or purchased.  Daily Paintworks is a wonderful site where artists can post their original work.  For the minimum investment of $12.95 a month, artists can post and sell paintings with no commission taken.  If one chooses to use the auction option, there is a commission.  Now, I just have paint more consistently.  That will be the tricky part.  Stop by and check out the site--there are, on the average, 200 original paintings posted every day, or scroll down and click on the Daily Paintworks link on the right side of this page to visit my DPW gallery.

Lifting Fog

I'm pretty happy with the outcome of today's hours of experimentation.  Clayboard with acrylic utilizing negative shape painting.  8" x 8" cradled.  I'll paint the sides black and it will be ready to hang. 

Frost on the Rose Hips

It won't be long now.  Winter's icy fingers are reaching out to wrap around our temperate weather days of late fall.  Like the old saying "Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it."  I've taken a LOT of foliage photos this late-fall season in hopes of discovering what can happen on Claybord when I focus on the negative shapes and paint deep into the thicket.  Still more work to be done on this one I'm thinking.
