This is a blog about painting: specifically, representational fine art, generally, using oil paint. I think a lot about what I'm doing, and those thoughts about subject matter, technique, influences, frustrations and delights all show up here. It's all about the journey.

My Current State of Painting
At right is a photo of the wall in my studio where I hang paintings that I'm working on. I learned a trick years ago (actually, most artists realize this sometime)---if you leave the room where you're working on a painting and then come back maybe a half hour later, the flaws and strengths will pop right out at you. You need that fresh eye, so to speak... So, the paintings are displayed on the wall, and when I come into the studio, it's easy to see what needs to be worked on since the last session. Anyhow, I thought you might like to see what's new since January.
Since January, BTW, I've sold about 8 paintings. This is good. Yes!

I have fallen into a rabbit hole
The rabbit hole of painting, that is. I have become a painting fool. Finished 37 pieces by the end of 2010. Started a couple of others this week. Actually won an award last month, which makes it all seem worthwhile. Will try to be a good girl and keep up with posts.
