Summer Clouds

Here’s the first painting of this month’s Creative February challenge. A bit about this project: A couple years ago, I had the idea to give myself a gift for my Birthday… the gift of time to create art every day for my birthday month. My friend, and amazing artist, Kate Edwards share my birthday so I asked her to join me! Happily, she agreed, and we got to work. I loved seeing her post her pieces, and they inspired me to keep going. That year we had a show at the Spring Street Gallery with all the work we produced for the month. It was great!

This is our third year, and I thought we’d open it up to other makers who’d like to join us. It doesn’t have to be your birthday month to participate! Here’s what you have to do:

  1.  Create something, anything, (drawing, knitting, collage, photo, illustration, painting, music, poetry… you get the picture) each day (most days) from 2/1 – 2/29.
  2.  Take a pic/video, post it to your blog (if you have one), Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, and use the tag ‪#‎CreativeFebruary‬ to share!

You can view my works from previous years here: Creative February

I hope you can join us!!

Cheers!

Until next time…

This evening, I was invited to do a demonstration of my oil painting technique at the Bethlehem Art Association Winter meeting. What a fantastic group! They had wonderful questions, comments, and insights to share as well. It also helped me get my painting of the day in!

I would like to thank, Peter Keitel (President), Jacueline Smith (Vice President, and collector of my work), and Bob Lynk (Workshop Coordinator) for thinking of me.

Wave Study

2/11/15 | “Wave Study” | 6×6″| Oil

Thinking of summer and the beaches of Cape Cod.
As I approach the twelfth day of consecutive daily painting, I have to say how happy and balanced I feel. I am a strong believer in taking time to honor something you love to do; whether it’s something that challenges or relaxes your mind – go for it! The practice has been very fulfilling thus far.
