At the beach

No, my excuse for being away from my blog was NOT that I was “at the beach”….if only that were true!  This was from a class exercise this past week done from a photo provided by the teacher.  It was fun to do, playing with my favorite colors of blue and orange.  In this case those colors in particular were cerulean chromium and quin burnt scarlet and quin burnt orange.

This has been a busy busy month for me with extra pressures coming from all sides:  gathering together my figures and setting up an inventory for tax season in my first year of selling art; having some kind of flu that knocked me out for much longer than usual, or I expected, and parenting stuff…oh yes, and painting and framing for two shows.

But I’m back, and on April 19th I’ll be doing a presentation on my 30 in 30 painting challenge experiences for the local Rio Bravo Watercolor group so I’m going to rev up and do a “mini” challenge:  15 days of the 30 in 30 so that I have new work to show.  So stay tuned for that.
