An Artist by Nature

This is an image journal of artistic places I have traveled to, places I have dwelt in for awhile and places I will always come back to. All my work is an expression of the joy and the beauty I see all around me. These expressions manifest in many forms, painting, drawing, photography, writing, fiber arts, landscaping & many other forms of art & design, especially in wood.
While my main inspiration has always been the natural world, it also wanders into the world childhood wonder and the sense of awe that I found then and still find now.

Cliff Lake Water Lily painting

Wild Water Lily photographed on hike to cliff Lakes ~ my current oil  painting project

On Jan. 15th 2016~ I worked 5 more hours on this.

I am working in the kitchen area now where the wood stove is for warmth
I am starting to put a second layer of paint on the plant, that is oils.

 This is my second painting session. I stretched this canvas myself to get the size I wanted. I gessoed it and put a layer of beige acrylic as a base. The dark background is oils, but the lily here is mostly acrylic which I washed in rather quickly. I am now starting to go over the acrylic with oils, for richness, depth and blending that can never done with acrylics. In the end I will also using glazing to try and get the reflection of the sky on the upper part of the picture.

These are my paint colors for this project. Even though much is now dry, I can still figure out what colors I used to mix other colors, which is really helpful as time goes on. I will save this even though I start on a new pallet sheet.

My Oil brushes...I think there is something many of us love about just looking 
at containers of brushes, full of potential and filled with love
