I've been inspired by so many wonderful, creative blogs about the daily painting movement. I am excited to participate and join the challenge of a daily (weekly?) chronicle of my creative pursuits. I love the idea of practicing daily and believe it is an excellent way to explore, learn and try out new ideas. So...here I go. Let the blogging begin. Please drop by often and let me know what you think! My goal is to post at least 3xs a week.
Pictured is a commissioned bowl with wild azaleas. I love the reflection of the design on the black table.
The painting is oil on canvas. probably 8x10. i painted this on tuesday, very quickly. I was working on another small painting from some images I took in Seattle at the Ballard market one sunday. I had cropped out this dog and kept looking at him..so i decided he could be in his own painting. his movement forward and the man's movement away really caught my interest. so i kept the rest of the painting simple, not wanting to get too caught up in the market scene. sometimes the broad planes of color are more interesting to me.
