I started this blog originally to remind myself that I was indeed out here most days, trying as best as I could, to craft this skill of being a painter. I made a pre-commitment to myself in 2007 to do my best to excell at this. To be the best painter I was capable of being. I never expected more. I never expected less. There was never a clear understanding of what my goal was. The appearance of success was never a distinct image or place or state of mind. It's a journey and I am pleased with most of the steps I have taken and with the progress I have made to date.
I found some dried sunflowers in my attic and plopped them in a vase and painted them.
Oil on panel 11"X14"
and now as this journey continues I sold this painting.
