Study, Study, Study!

I am pushing myself and experimenting again. I haven't posted my efforts because I am mostly making messes. Sometimes even deliberately! I know I need to change a few things and that requires trying new ideas and techniques out. It is rather fun but also frustrating when I don't get the effect or concept I want. I don't mind painting failures in fact, I actually am excited about it.  I may be "failing" to make a good painting but I can see that I am making progress. I just wish it was a faster process! I know, but I am human too!

In the meantime, I will post a rock sketch I did today. Sundays are my day of rest. I don't do well if I fail to get enough rest, wholesome food, and exercise. Good health means I get to paint for many more years.

I enjoyed sketching today. I walked from my house up to the north end of the beach. It is unusually sunny and warm here on the Northern Oregon Coast. Sketching was a very relaxing and almost meditative process. I had no expectations for this one. Here it is:

Keeping all my East coast friends and family in my thoughts. Stay Safe!
