Another January Challenge is over. Thanks to Leslie for the push to reach deeper, to explore, and to be consistently self-disciplined. As always, there was much to learn but this time I had a little more play in my doing. … Continue reading

Here we are today. I am almost finished but am off to a Women’s Retreat so I won’t be able to finish until Sunday. Putting the paint in the fridge til then. Check out the challenge at: … Continue reading

I was so blessed to receive an image to paint during worship today last Sunday. It is still a work in progress. More on the meaning to follow when it is finished. Check out the challenge at: … Continue reading

A painterly sketch using just my round brushes. I usually use a flat so this was a stretch for me. The oldest brush without a point was the best one for this painting. It started to look like one of … Continue reading
Busy, busy weekend. I have several works in progress. This one is about 80% complete. It is a bit of a cheat because it actually began in worship in November. I am enjoying this 30 n 30. I am learning … Continue reading

Well, my family, my students, and I made it! My desk is a mess but the house surprisingly enough looks OK including my kitchen studio. I did purchase a small fridge to hold my palettes because we just needed more … Continue reading
Another few days to finish this one. It is done completely with Hookers Green and Titanium White, completely analogous. Interesting – don’t you think?
I bought Golden’s Hookers Green Hue because I had it in my watercolor palette but have not used it. Today’s endeavors brought some delightful surprises. I’m definitely keeping this color. It has a very high tinting strength – a little … Continue reading
