Everyday I will be posting a painting I have created or am working on, plus comments, tips, and ideas relating to painting.

The Cathedral Quilt I am working on in the large still life. I haven't gotten alot done because of other things I've had to do that has cut into my painting time, but it is coming along nicely, and I like what I have done. To paint the quilt, I first lay in a very light wash of Cobalt blue with just a hint of color. Then I use Burnt Sienna mixed with cobalt and sometimes a bit of Raw Sienna to make shadows and refine the quilt.

Thanks, everyone for looking at my blog!
Painting is my passion and I try to paint as much as possible everyday. I love gardening and decorating my home, but when it is hot like it is here in summer, I find my studio is where I want to be! I have also been writing a book about my experiences in the antique shop business. Writing a book is a lot of hard work, what with editing and trying to get one's ideas down in a concise and interesting manner, not to mention the frustrations of using the computer!! I've almost completed it, though. I love so many creative things, including quilting! There just is not enough hours in the day.
