Where Did It Go?
Palette knife painting by me,
I was asked a few weeks ago if I would submit work
to be considered for a book about golf.
The painting above was a test run I painted in my art journal.
The rest of the series is on chipboard, and
will be available in the near future in my Etsy shop.
The book will come out later this spring, early summer.
I don’t know much about golf, although I do watch it
One little known fact about me is..
I’m a sports fanatic.
I don’t have any particular teams that I follow,
I just watch whatever’s on.
A couple nights ago I sat up until 2 am
watching ski racing I had on the DVR.
This is something I do alone.
Greg isn’t what I would call a sports fan.
He’ll watch a football game with me,
but most of last season,
I watched the games by myself.
My great grandmother, Sadie,
and so did my mother.
I guess I get it from them,
I don’t like baseball.
It’s about the only sport on tv
that I don’t watch.
I’ll let you know when the book is published,
and whether any of my paintings are in it.
I’m pretty sure you’ll be able to buy it
Keep your fingers crossed for me that I’ll make the cut.
I haven’t been feeling well,
so I’m late doing Wordless Wednesday this week.
Still working on this palette knife painting..
it’s been several weeks, and multiple layers of paint.
Not finished yet, but getting close now.
It’s suppose to snow tomorrow and Thursday.
I can’t wait!!
It will be so cool to watch it fall from my studio in the trees.
Listening to Asaf Avidan while painting today..
and now you can, too.
I’m such a sucker for boys who play guitar and harmonica.
where i will be creating
i’ve been working on getting some reference photos
up on the walls.
not so i can copy them,
but just to have them there as guidance..
Ooooh, yeah, that’s what a nose looks like!!
type of thing.
I couldn’t hang anything up on the plastered walls
downstairs because it was
but up here the walls are smoother, and I’m liking that!
still bare bones, and I’m pretty sure this will change..but,
this is where I’ll be writing, for now.
I think I have to turn my desk towards the other wall
because I like to watch Netflix or tv while I paint, and
the way it is now,
i can’t see my laptop or tv from where my easel is..
not good planning on my part. lol
I’m debating putting curtains on the windows
I like all the light that comes in.
It has blinds that I have pulled all the way up,
so I don’t really need curtains.
I swear the sun was making a heart shape through the clouds,
just for me,
and you, of course.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
I’m almost all moved in,
and I’ve already painted
my first painting
from up here in the trees.
More tomorrow! 🙂
