It's about MY time: where I'm going, what I'm doing, what I'm cooking and how I see things...Life is short. Work hard, play harder. Go!

Dancing Paint Brushes...
I have been taking painting classes from local artist Donna Beverly of Philomath throughout the year. This fall Donna was going to have a show of some of her paintings, as well as juried paintings of some of her students. I have two paintings that were accepted into the show, the only two paintings I'd finished up to that point. While they were "finished", the painting weren't what I think of as my best work, so I haven't advertised the fact that they are in a show. This month I have been working about 6 hours a week in Donna's studio, learning what I can about how to paint with acrylics and what my style might look like. I've realized that I need to paint daily to get where I want to be. I already have some good work coming along, and I'll be looking forward to that next show, I'm sure.
