Creating Every Day

I discovered a great web site called Create Every Day and I wanted to join. I created this blog so that I would have a link to show my work. As I've been rather busy this year creating art is has become something I think about rather than do. So, to start of, I am posting some past work so that you get an idea about what I can do. November is just about over so I will get on the band wagon with the new year and start posting new work. I have been totally inspired by this work.

A few years ago I happened on to a local art class and the cat below was my very first painting. It was painted from photograph and is a 30 x 40 oil on canvas. I stick with the classes dropping in and out as time permits. Painting and writing can be solitary pursuits and that is fine sometimes. But the class generates a kind of energy and support system that I think has been essential for my staying motivated.

That is AMAZING that the cat picture is your first painting. Wow! I am so impressed. It looks like a painting of someone who has been painting a lifetime. People like you give me inspiration.

Thank you for the sweet comment you left on my blog too.

I really like your paintings! They seem to capture the essence of their wildness. They are individuals not just animals. I too have recently started focusing on my art again, it's really powerful isn't it? I'm glad you joined Creative Every Day, I know it's been really fun for me so far and I look forward to seeing more of your work!
