Journal of My Work-in-Progress: Painting and Photography
Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog. It's a journal of sorts. It gives me a place to show my work-in-progress for my painting and photography. Comments are welcome --- add one at the end of an entry or email me at BarbBlumer@gmail.com.
I have been doing Spring cleaning for the last couple of weeks. I have written about learning the importance of giving yourself time to clean-up before (Allowing Time for Clean-Up). So, I have been restocking my art supplies, cleaning up my workspace and taking the time to evaluate what I have in-progress.
I made a game plan for what I want to complete for the summer, for photography and painting.
As far as painting goes, I have realized that I am content with working on painting landscapes this summer. Never thought I'd say that. But I am actually quite motivated to figure out what kind of landscapes appeal to me. I am very early on in the learning curve, so I consider most of what I have done to date practice.
Anyway, I didn't stop working completely. I completed a few studies. Flowers on the Fence (above) and Cows under the Trees (below).
8x10 Cows under Tree Study
I put them in the grid at the lake and will refine them once I get a chance.
Seven of the 15 openings now have studies in them.
