Mixing it up

16 x 20 Purple





Always looking for new inspiration.  This is from a painting (photograph) I took years ago. Technology allows me to see in the shadows where I could not see before and I feel that 10 years later I have some new skills I can throw in the mix.  I used to reach for color and bat it around and always be in a conundrum of trying something...if it didn't work, fixing it. 
I'm loving approaching life (painting) with a plan.  It's the whole thing about not having to invent the wheel every time....that really really gets old after a few decades.
Turns out there are some great tried and true methods to approach things, mix it up with a little personality and still have a unique work of art.

Lovely painting. You'll probable like teaching way more than you think. I was surprised at how fun it could be. I currently teach 4 classes with 21 students in all. Laughter fills the room every time. It can be both serious and fun at the same time. Enjoy!
