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

"In the Pink"
"In The Pink" 5 x 7 Oil on Panel $55 This is number 16 in the 30 day painting challenge sponsored by Leslie Saeta. There are numerous artists taking the challenge to paint 30 paintings in 30 days. Pretty awesome that so many are willing to paint that much! I would be painting anyway, but I am using this exercise in discipline to paint with water-soluble oils which is a bit out of my comfort zone. I will admit that I am loving the way they handle by using walnut oil as a medium. The other plus is that they hardly have any odor and no allergic reaction so far.
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.
