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.

Update, January 2011

While I haven't painted on a daily schedule since last spring, I have done a few rather important paintings. Ellie commissioned a double portrait of her grandsons, Barb requested a small portrait of her chocolate lab,  a Rose City couple ordered a whimsical rendition of their home and a watercolor of their Jacob's sheep and Burger King commissioned its eighth annual Christmas card design. Good business.

Now, in this somewhat slower time of the year, I'm attempting to clean my studio all the way to the corners. That's meant disposing of perfectly good small pieces of paper and matboard, actually parting with some paintings and less than fresh materials. I'll also pack away some treasures. After the sorting and tossing, the walls will get a new coat of paint and my life will be less cluttered. How's that for a New Year's resolution?
