“Signs of Spring”

Painting 13 of 100! I’m finding that inspiration comes from every day encounters a lot more than we believe. Most of the time us artists think we need to do big and great things! We go in search for this muse that will inspire us to create huge masterpieces. The reality is, our everyday lives…

“Visitor”

Day 12! Okay, painting 12! Our subject today was a frequent visitor over the weekend! We spent Memorial Day weekend at camp this year. Typically we go camping on this long weekend and this year was no exception. One thing that was a bit of an exception was, it was warm enough the kids wanted…

“Lullaby Waves”

Day 11! It appears I’m a tad behind, but that is okay! One thing I’ve learned is life doesn’t go the way you plan. Either you throw a fit, cry and fuss about it, or you adjust, smile, and accept the speed bumps! So, painting #11! I’m really enjoying the ocean scenes. For one, the…

“Morning’s Glory”

First stumble!

Opps! Yes, this is last week’s painting! This one is the day 1 of 100 paintings piece. And no, I didn’t paint it again. This is the plight of a college instructor, that when the semester ends the grades need to be finished and tallied! Grades are due this week and I’m still grading papers!…
