So much better

Sorry, meant to post this earlier but sorta forgot. Here is the apple sitting on, the table vs. floating above it. One ok maybe two or three brushstrokes helped. This should have also been cropped better. Next time, I promise to do it all correctly in one shot.

What have I learned from this post? Simplicity is the key, maybe to everything, not just art.

Help Is Coming

Poor little apple, just noticed it's levitating, not quite settled and needs to relax and sit on the table. I sorta feel that way sometimes. It will be easier to just fix the apple then address me being in a calmer state. What am I going to do? Darken the underside of the apple and then for me, try less Facebook and more positive atmosphere in music, reading and of course my sketching and painting. Your thoughts?

I'm finding I enjoy painting the shape of lemons. So, my goal is to not make them look like a paint in the lines type thing. Trying to be a little looser and relaxed in my effort. Words to live by I say. What are your thoughts? Of course I expect you to respond...I'm waiting.

Hi there, thanks for stopping by. I'm working on brushstrokes without over working the painting. Less is more. Paying more attention to my art is keeping me off the internet and in a positive frame of mind. Escaping into art and music is a wonderful thing to do. Try it!

Sorry about the glare, one day I'll learn how to photograph wet paint.

Looking at the newspaper this morning, I think I need to paint lots of flowers and sunshine over the next few years. That's just my take on our current affairs.
Ok, new subject, spring is right around the corner and I'm excited about getting outside and painting

Sunday Morning

I was quite disappointed Saturday when the Seahawks lost in the playoffs. So, I'm fortunate to have my backup Pittsburgh Steelers playing Sunday afternoon. Seahawks next year.

Looks like I've posted more in January than all of last year almost, striving to do better in the future. Meanwhile, you have a great day find something fun to do and report back. I'll be waiting.

See a theme here?

For some unknown reason, I got hung up on yellow roses. The color has been difficult for me but I've enjoyed the process of using different shades and learning to be looser with the rendition. Maybe I should look for another subject for a while. Don't want to bore you to death.
