I Am Unable to Make Any Promises
Having seen and admired many other pages and sites that show their "Painting A Day", I attempted to do the same. Several days later, there were lots of half finished paintings or sketches, but nothing worth keeping, showing, or continuing. So I hope to introduce in this spot (beginning January) my "Painting a Day, Every other day, or Whenever the Mood Hit" section of the Blog. I know my limitations and am willing to come to terms with them.
Thanks.

This is one of my favorite paintings. Not only is it of a dear friend, but also one of my favorite processes... majorly reducing one of the "old masters' " technique. This class is taught on TheTroddenPath.Ning.Com site. This painting now hangs in London in my sister-in-law's kitchen. It is one of those paintings that I became attached to and miss it dearly. At least it is still in the family.

The mysteries of Photos

It's cold. I decided to stay in and do a bit of organizing and planning so as to have a little direction before painting. I recently completed a showing of funerary monuments for one of the local galleries and really wanted to do something new. The first venture in that was the Coming and Going series (a few post below). As I've been rummaging (and getting more and more distracted) I came across some brilliant photos of my husband's family. Being some of his distant relatives, I have no idea who, where, when, or why. But I'm finding the 'mysteriousness' of it fascinating. Today, I did not quite formulate a plan as to what I wanted to do or finish organizing and filing paperwork, but I think this may have been a very good derailment. Though the task master in me cringes at the thought, I must admit, Procrastination Is Not Always an Enemy! I'm excited at the possibilities. Any ideas?  Enjoy.
