a breath of fresh air

April 21, 2008

Took a brief siesta this weekend in Hilton Head.  Great to see Nick’s family, and even better to catch my breath, and gear up for a busy week.

Enough time to paint my favorite crooked little tree…(again)

day one

April 7, 2008

Today is day one of my latest mural endeavor…(technically not day one as there have been hours of planning sketching etc…but today, I will actually get to put paint on the walls…)  So it’s a good thing I wake up refreshed this morning after our weekend siesta to Hilton Head.

Unfortunately, the weather was not our friend.  It pretty well rained and stayed gloomy while we were there.  This did not sit well with Alan or Jasmine…

but we managed to feed them well.  In fact, I think we could fast for a week and still be full…just look at those frowns turned upside down…

I, on the other hand, finally got to paint that crooked little palm tree…which satisfied me greatly.

back to basics…

April 1, 2008

March turned a bit complicated for me, and for the most part left me uninspired. Much like I would imagine a writer feels when writers block sets in, there are times when I am simply not motivated to paint. And while I could have bombarded you with the various tactics I used to nurture my creative spirit in this time of drought…most did not seem blog worthy.

In an effort to make sure April starts right, I did some plein air painting with my handy-dandy portable watercolor set.


Not my usual medium of choice, but perfect for a quick study or two of my beloved sycamore tree.
