I didn’t get the greatest sleep last night but I was able to get some art in.
Today I moved back to the Paper Chevron painting.
Its time to put this painting in the closet and let this layer dry for a while.
I’m almost positive that tomorrow I will finish the first stage of this painting.
I’m taking my time with the paper triangle values and making sure I get them close.
Another super productive day but I didn’t get those post out till the next day.
Today’s art session was very fun! I worked on Paper Triangle and began an illustration.
I’m gone far enough with this painting for now until it’s dry.
I’m continuing to refine all the values in this painting and the drawing.
Now I’m making great headway on this painting but I’m having to fix a lot of values.
The second session of Paper Cross was more troublesome than I expected.
This is the fourth in what may be a long going series of paper paintings.
The second day on the Paper Chevron painting was very productive.
I’ve started on my next paper painting and for now I’m calling it Paper Chevron.
Two days in a row and I’ve finished two paintings.
A great day of painting! I was able to spend all kinds of focused time.
Today I moved back to the Paper Flame painting and began glazing in color.
I spent lots of time painting today and taking this painting to the next stage.
Another very busy day but I was able to stick to my schedule and get some good art time in.
I had a super busy day today and was unable to spend as much time as I wanted painting.
The second day of glazing and this time I got the layer of color closer to what I want.
The first day of work employing what I’ve learned about glazing is a success!
I’ve finished this first stage of my paper flame painting and now put it away to dry.
After work today it’s nice sitting and calmly painting. It’s almost meditative.
I’ve moved back to my Paper Flame painting today as I’m waiting for the Knot painting to dry.
I finished up all the black and value work on Paper Star today and I figured I try adding the next step to some dry…
A wonderful morning of painting and conversation with a fellow creator on the journey to mastery.
Much more work time than art time today and I’m a bit frustrated.
I have a day off work today and a long hike planned so I’m making progress however small on this painting.
Day seven on this painting and I’ve pulled out the smaller brushes.
Sunday early morning painting and I’m wonder how smooth is smooth enough.
This morning as I continue with the Paper Star painting I’m contemplating changing the title of these paintings.
I moved back to the Paper Star and begin refining it’s edges today.
I spent a lot of time working on refining the subtle transitions of value with the paper folds today.
Time has been a scarce commodity these past few days but I still plan my art and execute when I can.
I had a super busy work day today and little time to work on this painting but I got some focused work in.
Because all of the other paintings are still wet I’ve started a fourth painting in tandem.
The first strokes of oil on my Paper Star painting and I’m figuring out the hue needed for an ethereal glow.
I started drawing and painting on the third painting that I will be working on in tandem with others.
I was able to end up with a very productive art day today despite all the errands I had to run. Plus I finished the…
I’m little pressed for time on today’s post so I’m going to keep it short and just chat about another productive day.

I’ve had a wonderful morning of art before I started my “real job” where I added in more still life oil painting work.
After a couple hours of painting today I realized that I’ve forgotten all kinds of nuances in oil painting. Luckily the intricacies of working oil…
Even though my sleep wasn’t the greatest last night I woke up with a ton of energy and was able to begin a new oil…
The still life I did yesterday didn’t have the impact that I wanted to achieve. I wanted something to entice people to the demo.
This is the stack of pills that I pull from daily.
