I painted today for the first time in two weeks. I am so excited I wanted you to see the strawberries today. I know it is not a good photograph but as soon as it dries I will scan it. I used three colors Gamblin Cad Yellow light, Perylene Red and Ultramarine Blue and Permalba White. It was a challenge but so much fun to do.
It's raining and cold today, I would like to be sitting in front of the campfire right now but I am busy painting on my scarves. I should have twenty by the end of the week. I just finished a 30" x 30" and the next one is a long one and that will have a sheep design. What fun I am having.
This is not a new painting but one that makes me think of fall and winter coming. It was 37 degrees when I woke up this morning and it felt mighty chilly. I taught today and as always a wonderful day. Later when Missy and I got home, we took another walk a very brisk walk. The leaves are changing and looking more beautiful every day. Missy loves this kind of weather. Jennifer gave Missy a Halloween present a very cute ladybug outfit to go trick or treating with. She loves to wear little outfits so she wore her new one all through class. I hope you know I am working on scarves for the show (opening Nov 7th) and I really miss painting my daily paintings. I will start up as soon as I am done for this show. Love to all.
I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. I went to college when I was 37 years old. I loved it so much, I was a sponge and absorbed anything and everything about art. I started out wanting to be a portrait artist but ended up using pencil and colored pencils. I made quite a name for myself with my drawings. I won many awards. When I needed a break from that I went into oil sticks and just loved them and again did very well with awards. I finally went back to my oils but always felt frustrated with them I wanted to be free from all constraints, I am now working in acrylics and loving them. So now the sky is the limit. I just want to go and do everything I feel and want to express.
