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

"Little Brown Bowl"
"Little Brown Bowl" 6 x 6 oil on Gessobord $55 This is number 21 in the 30 day painting challenge. To see the other artists paintings, please go to Slices of Life blog spot by Leslie Saeta. Gessobord is a prepared panel that is very smooth, without the tooth of canvas, but nevertheless, very fun to paint on. I think it is a bit easier to be "painterly" or loose on Gessoboard, and it is recommended for oils and acrylics.
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.
