What Might Have Been

Looking at my reference photos from my recent Plein Aire excursion showed me so many better options for the painting I might have created. Why didn’t I see it then? What can I do to better the editing of my compositions while painting en Plein Aire?

A Step Backward

I feel I’ve taken a step backward and not in a good way. This one isn’t done, but I can already tell it’s going to take a lot of work to redeem. Once again I have failed to edit properly en Plein Aire. It was fun (despite the frustration) to paint at Earth Works. Lots of beautiful vignettes and waterfalls and pots to choose from.

Elle is another of my favorite online poets to read. It is at least partially because she only posts on Sundays and I look forward to the pleasure all week.

I am really enjoying

Elancharan‘s Haiku. I’ll have to pull out some of my “visual haiku photos to post here too.

Redemption?

A lil bit. At least I do feel that I helped the situation by darkening behind and around the statue. I’ve only got a little bit more to do. Although, this is likely to be one of those I put in the closet for a month or so. Then I’ll take it out and see if there’s something to fix before I frame. Speaking of framing, this month is going to be dedicated to a lot of that. I must have 30+ pieces waiting to be framed.

I knew it

Well, I was pretty sure, I’d do something to ruin it eventually. I knew this subject was a little beyond my skill set. How do you get good enough, though, unless you go ahead and give it a go. I’m not done but have already learned a lot for the next time I tackle such a subject. Hear that? I’m undaunted by my failure. For one thing I think I may still be able to get a decent painting out of this. Just not the one I had intended.

A Break from Reality

The weekend seemed like a good time to return to my “Viva Italia” mixed media piece. It is very hard to choose, sometimes what goes on when.

Tweaking not Twerking

Spent the morning in the studio tweaking two pieces. The first I deem done. The second still needs more darks in the flowers and jar/vase.

Listen to Yourself

So sometimes you need to yourself. I knew I wasn’t really in the state of mind to work on my Boboli Garden piece, but I did it anyway. I may have screwed the pooch, jumped the shark, f—ked up. Then I moved on to another piece and probably shoudln’t have touched that either. Sometimes sleeping on it helps. I will do that. Tomorrow is another day.

Almost Done

It was a wonderful feeling to walk in my studio tonight and know that I had several works to choose from to work on. I chose this one. I have a weekly “Studio Club” that I host every week. This is one of the rare times that my artistic endeavors are not done alone. It helps both my friends and myself to schedule studio time and ensures we work at least once a week. Of the 4 pieces that needed completion, I chose this landscape of the Italian countryside. It still needs some adjustments to the background and to that foreground red bush.
