Blue Wall



OMG - it took me a few moments to dig into the crevices of my brain and remember how to post on my blog . Just thought I'd give it a go to remind myself that I WILL paint daily again, hopefully SOON. I'm finishing up the book, "Modern Acrylics" and its about 95% done. The deadline seems to be a tad looser than I was led to believe, isn't that always the case (the rule of thumb in advertising I learned many moons ago is, "never enough time to do it perfectly, unlimited time for revisions"). We are in the "refining" stage now. My publisher has requested a few more paintings to illustrate some of the points I've made in the text. Thankfully, we are in the home stretch now... the book is due to hit the art stores this fall.
Altho I should be in the studio creating those final paintings, in a weak moment I decided to get out the feather duster and start reviving my blog. My husband just handed me the world's most perfect rose from our garden. It's screaming "PLEASE PAINT ME". In a perfect world I will finish the book paintings and get to this rose while it is bursting with color, fragrance and life.

Nice painting, and glad you are "back". I have you linked on my blog, so the thumbnails show when something is new. So good to meet you at the workshop. I feel the same way about getting back to the daily painting. Soon, soon, soon, but not soon enough. For me, house renovation in VT, and travel to graduations delays it until later in June. It's June!!! Can't believe how time flies. Keep painting!
