Well, I did not shot pictures to post of my 50/50 paintings but I did get 4 done...now...next week I may think they need some more work but for now they are done. I am trying to paint them without using liquin. The liquin speeds drying but I really think I may have a negative reaction to it. Also when I do not use it my paint is thicker and richer and I like that.I did do my figure study for my "Situation and the Environment" class. It is not done. It is 3 hours work and a block in of value and gesture. I also toned 15 canvases from 8"X 10" to 20" X 24" for the same class. It is funny, I give my students a month...about 20 hours for one painting of course it is most of their first time oil painting and I am very proud of their effort. They are pretty amazing. In the same amount of time I have about 8 pieces to do, but mine is after the work day.I am going to post my homework here. Please understand it is a 3 hour block in not a finished painting.
I love painting and the world around me is amazing. Life is to short and I want to see the best in people. I am putting a few drawings on eBay, as I have time. My Etsy store is empty for now, maybe when I retire or finish my M.F.A. or just find some extra time, I may try again. My Blog is more a forum to share what I am painting, my growth, both failures and successes. I am also working on my M.F.A. in painting and working full time as a high school art teacher. I am an 10 year cancer survivor so I have been given a special gift of life and want to enjoy it to it's fullest.
