What Would It Say?

Key, I Oil on Linen 5"x7" $98

My key is done. Although, once the photo of the painting pop up on the computer, I saw lots of mistakes. Ahhh! Does this happen to any of you out there in the wonderful world of blogs?

Oh, thank you, Lindsey Tull for the great advice on painting metals. I still have plenty of prccticing to do, but at least I felt a bit more confident with the knowledge you shared with me.

Lindsey does beautiful work. I admire the way ath she can emulate metal. It is fantastic. Visit her blog and see for yourself.

I still wonder what the key was for and who it belong to. What stories would it tell?

  3. I don't have a scanner but have found that my digital camera plays tricks on me. I have a frustrating time getting close enough for detail and trying to keep the paper square - the edges appear to bow out. I like your key. You are doing great- I have no idea where you see mistakes, it looks good to me.

  4. You've got the key to the highway...

  5. This is so beautiful.... Wonderful job!!

Labor of Love

Sunflowers in Cobalt Blue Vase,   Oil on 5 "x7"   Linen Panel SOLD  Private Collection in San Saba, TX First, I must say that everything I paint is because I absolutely love. I don't like to paint things that I don't find to be attractive to me for one reason or another. Sometimes it's sentimental reasons and other times it's as simple as beautiful colors or the texture. Either way, it's something that I want to capture and stare at for long periods of time. I want to study it and how it affects the environment around it, as in the case of Sunflowers in Cobalt Blue Vase does. In that respect, I feel ALL my paintings are a labor of love.  More often than not, I have to create a painting, wipe it all down, and start all over again if something is just not working. Some never get completed and I just end up painting something totally different on that panel. Then there are some, that I just have to paint, no matter how much trouble they are giving

Thank you for the happy e-mails, the wonderful advice and sharing of resources, and your kindness and support all around. I've found that simplifying my life can be complicated and messy at first, but I am getting into the swing of things and finding my way around raising chickens, keeping bees, organic gardening and teaching art. During winter break, I started my coop plans--all the things coops had to have and the best way to build it so that that it would not be something my neighbors would mind seeing as they step outside their houses. I must add that I have the BEST neighbors in the world. I bought chickens in March and by April, they were ready to be outside of the broode
