What It's All About

Foreign Cinema oil on canvas 10 x 10 in.
Two Trees oil on canvas 10 x 10 in.

Not much to report:  tomorrow is the last day of the show at City Art, and today "Impulse" at Arc Studios & Gallery ended - that one goes up quickly after an in-person selection process, and comes down even more quickly. The ArtSpan fundraiser, which I never miss donating to, is on March 29 this year. . .  other than that I'm on my own!

Remember I said I didn't get Pinterest? Totally hooked now. Go to my Pinterest page and the Inspiration for paintings board to see What It Is All About. I wouldn't paint directly from other people's photos - those amazing photographers really deserve to be credited - but they could be a resource for palette or composition.

This year I hope to paint more animals, more children, and more little fires. I think I will do some small paintings of trees, which just sounds like nothing, but may be a simple and useful exercise. I took some photos of trees on a moonlight walk home one time - actually, many of my paintings are from photos I took on my way home.
