Artist's Blog Carnival

| 18 August, 2013 15:03

Today I am participating in a blog carnival about a day in the life of an artist.   I'm happy to show you a little piece of a day in my life as an artist during this blog carnival.  It's an honor to be participating with all the other fine artists and hope you can also visit their blogs to see what they have been doing.

 
Since I'm an artist, I will show you in pictures how my time is spent during a typical day.  Here's my studio, where I head after breakfast and mailing any paintings from the previous day.

On this particular day I went through my photo file on my computer and chose a beach cottage picture that I took last summer in Pt. Pleasant, NJ.

Here's the progression of this painting, from loose block in with acrylic paints, to the details and color changes to fine tuning it.  Happily, the finished painting sold in a Daily Paintworks auction
