The Painting Blog

Started as a daily painting blog but this is easier to live with-
the once-in-a-while blog of a painter who also writes.

January 12 Pretty Little Winter Scene

On a busy day like today, I was happy to fall back on my window painting experience and paint a quick little greeting card scene. It's based on the picturesque farm half-way between here and Long Prairie.

We had to skip the Snap Fitness workout this morning to get to St. Cloud for a contract negotiation meeting for my book about the vinegary. The publisher is south of St. Cloud and believe it or not, had a goat giving birth in a small shelter outside the company door! I'll save that story for another time.

From that meeting we zipped back into St. Cloud. I met with the publisher and account rep of the magazine I edit: Central Minnesota Women. Ron putzed around town, ate some tacos and took a nap.

Then back home for a ten minute session of daily painting before heading back to Long Prairie for Savannah's first basketball game of the season. Her team didn't come out victorious but they were fun to watch.

Supper was a quick assembly of soup using the chicken stock from those chicken wings on Sunday. Ron was going to make noodles but we were out of flour. Gosh, who's in charge of grocery shopping these days?

Twenty more minutes of painting post-supper, application of my simple signature, a digital moment then quick upload to the blog and next I'll be off to play volleyball at 7:30. Hey, the daily painting got me out of dishes tonight. Art perks.

  1. Wow, what a day! Looking forward to hearing more about that book deal. I like the picture too! Keep it up girl!

  2. Glad you like the quick painting. We have to have coffee, soon.

  3. This one pleases me very much. It seems so quiet and cold and peaceful. This is the imnage I would want on my wall if I had a beach villa in Costa Rica.
