I love painting reflections on a glass surface, the lights generally reflect darker and the darks reflect lighter...same with reflections on water. It's one of those things I love about painting. You just need to trust your eye to know how to mix a color that you are seeing.
I'm back at it with A Painting a Day....well, hopefully at least 3X a week as my schedule allows.
I have missed the discipline of completing a small painting in a day. My last post was in 2012 and during the interim a lot has transpired. 2012-2016 I had a beautiful gallery with space for my easel to paint in downtown Ketchum. I represented 5 nationally known bronze sculptors and while I loved having the gallery I wasn't getting much of my own painting done.
I look forward to keeping my blog up to date and check out what other artists are up to.
In the beginning of this blog I set a goal of one small painting a day for one year. While I didn't reach my goal, I did complete 125 small daily paintings. I still enjoy the tiny format and do them when I can.
This is my 30th year as a professional painter and yet with this new goal I feel like it's a new beginning. I am very excited. Each daily painting will be auctioned on eBay starting at $100. So, without further ramblings I launched the first of 365 little oils on October 22, 2007!
