Never More - October Raven


This little Raven painting was fun to paint. I used a knife this time. I'm liking the textural quality it gives the painting. Very visceral and somehow fitting for the season. Plus it's a painting exercise that pushes me out of my comfort zone.

The 941




Well, I did manage to get this one painted (and my kitchen as well!) and started a larger one as well. And I have been working on my business plan which also takes a lot of time. I think I need a personal assistant to take care of some of this stuff. Still more busy-ness for the next 2 weeks but I will really try to paint - I miss it!

The Great Little White Pumpkin



I seem to have hit an artist's block. Actually I've felt like I've been hitting my head up against that block for the past month. ( no wonder my head hurts!) Even the simplest of subjects seems to be challenging. It happens, and if the words of wisdom are right - I'm on to a breakthrough in my art. I suspect part of it is the multitude of things occupying my mind at the moment, no wonder the muse isn't showing up without a struggle! So, I'm not going to worry about getting that painting out every day and I'm going to get the other things done, like planning for house guests, spending the next couple weeks with my daughter before she moves to Florida again, do some business planning...and I'll still paint. It really makes it so much easier once I decide to allow myself to do the other stuff. A lot better than wallowing in my artist "angst" - which really is a waste of time. I wonder what other artists do when it just ain't workin'? Let me know.

This is one of those little white pumpkins from a previous painting. You need a small exacto blade to carve these little guys!

Blue Tetons



The Tetons are amazing mountains. I'm not sure if they always appear blue but they were an incredible blue when I saw them. Someday I hope to get out there again to paint. My first and last trip out there was a couple summers ago. if you ever get a chance to go ...go for it!

More little pumpkins. I might have to attempt carving jack o lanterns out these guys later although I'm not sure if I can find candles small enough. Stay tuned, you may see these in disguise.
