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

"Key West Cottage"
"Key West Cottage" 5 x 7 Oil on Panel $55 This is one of those paintings that just happens. You sit down, don't have anything really in mind, just paint the whole thing some lush color thinly, let it dry, then just START. At first I thought I'd wipe it all off and plan something, but the more I fiddled with it, it just BECAME, so here it is. I guess it works. I can say that I am getting lots of experience with water soluble oils. Number 18 in the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge.
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.
