Quick update…

I was planning on visiting a gallery, however, this head-cold got in the way of any pleasantries today. Miserable and mad at myself for losing my cell phone. I did manage to set up a still life today, painting will resume tomorrow as I want to paint to daylight. I’ve sketched in my still life and am ready to paint first thing tomorrow. I’m…

Head cold :(

I woke up yesterday with a head-cold, and today feel somewhat crappy, I’m going to take some cold meds and when I feel up to it, I’m going on a field trip today, visit a few galleries and take some pics. Photography is one of my favorite things to do.  Now for those meds, a fresh cup of coffee hippie style 😉

Coffee and todays plan…

For some reason, I awoke way to early this morning, not getting much sleep.  Eager, I guess to start the new day. I plan on tidying up my studio today and completing a landscape that’s been sitting incomplete for way too long. I have several ideas for subject matter for upcoming paintings. A friend of mine has worked on many vintage muscle cars, so…

Todays ideas, tomorrows paintings…

I’ve come to a fork in the road today. A road block per se. Dilemma– I’m wanting to produce exciting paintings. Perhaps passionate, intriguing, dramatic, serene. I’m looking for that certain  ‘je ne sais quoi’ – but can’t decide which genre to pursue. So this is my plan. To complete a painting of several genre. Figure, Nude, Still life, Vintage car, Landscape, City scape…

Brainstorming…..

Ok, so I had an epiphany this morning while in the shower. This is where most of my ideas originate.  I know what to do now. I’m on a mission. No more boring compositions. Yawn :- 0 Hmmmmm….. where’s my coffee….

Plan for the day….

My still life painting is bothering me, must  work on that right away. Once done I’ll glaze the mandolin and get started on a new piece. Now, where’s my coffee cup….

Evening thoughts…

Another day has come to an end, spent the day working on my still life and worked on ‘three friends fishing’ The still life has a few hours worth of work to go. Have a few issues to resolve, may have to include another grape to the left and slightly in front of the chalice. I’m definitely going to buy some flowers and include…

Morning contemplation…

Coffee in hand, in front of my easel, contemplating my days work. I’m taking a new picture of three friends fishing, prefer taking pics with natural daylight for lighting.  Definitely working on the chalice and grapes and getting that off my easel. The mandolin’s next. Then set up my new still life…. now to clean my brushes and get ready for painting. And…my eldest…

Days end reflection…

After a days painting I sit back and view my work, I’m pleased with how it turned out. Got a bit of tweaking to do when dryer and it’s a done deal. My next project is to complete a large landscape. It’s got a days worth of work left on it. And then in between that I’m finishing off the still life and glazing…

A new day….

Good morning world, happy Sunday 🙂 Thankful for a new day and another chance to make my mark on this planet. Have several paintings on the go. Just posted a pic ‘on my easel’ – one is a landscape, getting close to completion, and a still life I plan on completing today. The chalice and grapes. Going to be working on the fabric and…
