Here It Is The Fourth, Already!

Yikes...this year is already going fast. I hope I can keep up. One of my goals for this year is to post to the blog at least four times a week, or more. I have Alison Stanfield's book, I'd Rather Be In The Studio, but I can't find it. And the plan was, and is, that I follow her plan to a t. As soon as I find it, I'll get started.

Here is my painting for Karin Jurick's Different Strokes From Different Folks. 

It has been sitting here waiting for me to finish it while I organized my studio, which I did. Yeah! Now I have lots of bins and baskets with various stuff in them. I hope I remember where I put everything.

Really nice job, Deborah!

This painting developed and ended beautifully. I was wondering what you would do to finish and really like the way the background was handled. Good luck with the bins and boxes. After moving a year and a half ago I still can't find my old cameras and I need those lenses. sigh! If I don't see it...well you know.

This is terrific! I really like the contrast between the cool aqua hues and the rich gold tones.

YEs I love the color contrast too and the way you finished his face and eyes are great.

I'm a bit late posting this. But I love your comment where you said that you hope you remember where you put everything, because that sounds just like me!

I clean everything up, pack it away into its own little boxes/drawers/cupboards/compartments, then forget where I put everything and make a mess all over again while I'm trying to find it all! Must learn, must learn...
