A Different Kind of Day

Last Thursday I had hoped to use today as a splurge day instead of painting. I was going to take the day off, do something fun, go to the spa. Turns out, my sister in law Carole was unexpectedly scheduled for surgery this morning. Carole lives and works in Santa Monica, we live by Disneyland. […]

Brush Fetish

I love a one brush day. I’m talking painting now. If I get done painting for the day and I go to wash up my brushes and realize there is only one dirty brush I know it was a spectacular painting day. I do have to find the right brush to begin with but after […]

I picked up the digital copies of my newest painting from the photographer today. He did a great job and worked quick. I took him two other paintings that had never been photographed and he finished digital files for those. I sent the files to my son Dan so he could cut them up and […]

Lost in Painting Land (I hope)

It’s Saturday morning I’m planning on painting all day, unless it gets so hot I can’t sit out in the sun room. I usually don’t notice the weather when I paint but it’s been really hot and I don’t have air conditioning out in my painting room. I hope to get lost in my painting […]

What do People think I’m saying?

I’ve been painting 28 years. When I first painted wildlife I had time to promote my work. I entered art contests, joined wildlife groups, made contacts and participated in art shows. It was hard work but I did make progress commercially. After a while I spent more and more time working in my tax office […]

Crazy is in the Details

I finished my new painting today. I had to call it quits. Enough is enough. I kept track this time 114 hours on the new painting and I didn’t sign it yet. (So you can’t see it yet.) If you paint or do projects you probably know what I mean. The details of the painting […]

Why did I pick Stripes?

I love painting animals. They are all so unique and beautiful. I get and idea in my mind and it fills up my head until I have a painting. I will search photo purchase sites and purchase just the right line in the animal, just the right type of background, every angle meets my approval. […]

Thursday is the Wildest Week Day

Have you read the saying, “The worst day fishing, surfing, (insert your passion here), is better than the best day working? That’s the way I feel about Thursday morning painting class. I’ve been going to Barbel’s Art Studio in Huntington Beach on Thursday mornings for more than 20 years. We’ve lost a few students over […]

Keep Going

Saturday I painted 7 hours and today, Sunday, an additional 5 so I have a good start on the new painting. If you look at my Etsy site you’ll see I’ve painted many different animals, felines, primates, canines, birds and the lone elephant. I wanted to paint something totally different this time. So I decided […]

I’ll Paint Rocks, (if I have to!)

I joined facebook in 2009 not knowing very much about it. After stumbling around for awhile I got the hang of posts, friends and likes. In 2010 I posted my paintings in an album on facebook and shared them with my friends. The positive response to the paintings was really overwhelming. I am always hoping […]
