Here it is mid February already and spring is right around the corner. Many of my artist friends and I are looking forward to getting out to do some plein air painting soon!! Its hard to imagine when you have mornings like today but it really is just around the corner!!! Cherish every moment knowing the sun will shine tomorrow! Today I was reminded by someone ......" Do not rush and do not worry." Thanks for that reminder ; 0 ) such kind words of wisdom.
Its been quite a while since I have posted here on my website. This year I took advantage of the nice weather meeting my friends out plein air painting and even had a couple of shows this summer and fall..
I have been watching Ken Salaz's online oil painting guidance video's which have been wonderful! Also experimenting with acrylics. on wood. and at first I was not sure if I liked them but found the palette knife work challenging so I continue to work in this area to try and improve.
Watching my granddaughter a couple times a week and I paint the other days. Retirement is great and Life is Good!
If you wish to see my current work send me a friend request on Facebook.
Happy Holidays, Laine
