Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas
Love the atmosphere of this photo. 
The beginning


I'm still exploring the use of only four colors.
Titanium White
Phthalo Blue (Green Shade)
Quinacridone Crimson
Hansa Yellow Med.

I'm beginning to question why and feel like I may be taking more to the Artist in Residence studio soon. 
I'm also exploring the discomfort of leaving a the page incomplete when my time is up. 
In other words, when I stop for the day, that's it. 
No more work on that page. 

You do know that I make these rules for myself day-by-day. 
and 
I usually break a rule day-by-day. 

Merry Christmas

  3. This is so wonderful...It has inspired me and am looking forward to some kind of "artist in residence" in my soul.....not sure yet, but have been thinking of what to do...so today I began by cleaning my spot and focusing on my materials....getting them there where I can see them and them speak to me.....I even kept a few old books out and now that I see you painting in this book, I think I may start there!!! THANK YOU! Blessings to you this year, especially in the GARDEN PLACE!! I just had a thought!!! I have an abandoned 8x10 tall playhouse in the back yard!!! I may redo it for a few trips....to who knows where!?? Oh you are wonderful!!
