A little bit of progress
It has been a busy month I haven't been able to spend a lot of time painting. I decided I had better at least show the little bit I've done rather than leave my poor little blog completely neglected. This is still in the very early stage but I think it is coming along. I saw Betsy Dillard Stroud's amazing painting in the April issue of Watercolor Artist and it inspired me to dig out the old photos I took years ago in Sedona and give it a try. Here is Betsy's inspiring painting...
I especially like the patterns she has on the rocks. I am trying to teach myself how to paint and I like to make practice paintings trying out different styles just for fun. What really wish I could do is figure out what MY style is! I know my common thread is birds and nature, but I'm not even close to figuring out what my signature style is, and it is VERY frustrating. I like to paint both whimsical and more realistic images. But I guess I'm getting ahead of myself, I need to learn how to paint first. So I shall continue to putter along trying new things, in my own way, and hopefully my authentic voice will reveal itself along the way. SOON. Please make it soon!
