Hay 46 Tractor Done For the Day, Resting Oil 6"X6" Eger
This little painting went through several changes. In the original version you only noticed the tractor if you meditated on the painting, so I realized that there needed to be more contrast in the negative spaces behind the tractor to set it off. I have been watching an old art instruction video by Sandra Freckleton, while using the eliptical machine in the morning. Although I am not doing watercolor right now, she gets my creative mental mood in the correct place to work with my students. We are almost done with oil painting in the high school classroom. Tuesday I will introduce tints, tones, and shades to the intro. art students and lino cuts to the advanced students. I still have not gotten into the groove of painting after school this year. Since I became department head for the art dept. there are meetings almost everyday for something...but it is my goal!!! Stay in the moment! Until tomorrow...CLICK HERE TO BID
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.
