In between my goofing off I do really spend time painting. My two storybooks for my grandkids have taken the lion's share of time but that project is almost complete. Right here and now I will committ to learning how to do a video of me reading one of the stories.....now I really have to do it!
Many years ago I traveled to our western states but I did not see the high desert or the Georgia O'Keffe territory that so inspired her art work. I want to see the plateaus, mesas and buttes of the Americam southwest but the nearest I can get at the moment is painting them. I think I have captured a little bit of the arid expansive vistas as they are draped in a sunset across the red rocks.
Please join me on DailyPaintWorks.com to see this and some of my other of my smaller paintings.
I took to retirement like a duck to water! Now I have the time and energy to create art. I like to go on experimental side ventures within the various media, techniqes and styles of painting. At the present I am exploring paste paper mixed media collage. Take a workshop or two and I am off taking a thimble full of knowledge and turning it into a torrent of art work. Who knows what is next but I sure look forward to the learning adventure.
