Hello everyone!
I had a wonderful Thansgiving and I hope you did too. I'm glad it's over - it was a little like my last hurrah before my 100 pound Challenge starts on Monday. If you would like to follow my weight loss progress, please click on the link to your right and it will take you to a sign-up spot.
I am getting myself ramped up to finish several projects; a few small 8x10 commissions, a piece of plywood for the Harwood Art Center's annual fundraiser, 12x12, and a couple of special paintings I'm working on.
For those of you who don't know, I belong to the website,, the largest group of artists from all over the world creating daily paintings. I also just joined the Daily Abstract Painters online gallery. I don't really paint abstract work, but this is a year out of my comfort zone, so it will be a new experience for me.
I am also planning to take a series of live model drawing classes. That should challenge my drawing skills and help me develop some new techniques, as I hope to paint the figure during the coming year.
New daily paintings are coming, so stay tuned. I haven't decided whether they will be available for purchase through Paypal or through auction on eBay, let me know if you have a preference. Bye!
