A Start

The weather was perfect today.  Bright and clear, mild breeze and not too warm or humid.  Perfect day to be painting outside.  I choose to remain in the studio, as I rarely paint what I see, and I was too lazy to pack the paints up, and walk or drive to another location.

This is a "start" and I don't know where it's going to go.  It should be an interesting journey.  This is after the first round of applying paint.  18 x 24 wrapped canvas.  The afternoon slipped by quickly.  I need long stretches of time to immerse myself in my work.  An hour here and there doesn't work for me.  I have the next several days ... don't have to be back to my day job (we all have to eat) until Thursday and the house is clean enough. 

Now that I've committed myself to my own process, I don't have studio avoidance syndrome.  I can't wait to get there!   Should be a great summer for artwork. 


  1. I really do love this and longing to see the end product. Thank you for dropping bye my blog will follow yours with expectation. Your work is way so much more exciting than mine will ever be.

  2. I love this piece at this stage...Are you sure it's a start?

  3. Jennifer, your work is wonderful! I look forward to seeing where you go with this one.

    Thanks for joining my blog and I will follow yours. I was in Maine for a few days last week -- Portland. We are very fond of Maine.

  4. Yes, it WAS a start, I make a place to begin and go from there. It's in a middle stage right now. I can still recognize some parts of the start.

  5. This is really amazing! I wish you had stopped! This non-existing piece is so intense and powerful! Its interesting to see how it evolved and where it ended up. There is something about the color palette here that really grabs me...

    Hope you're enjoying painting!
