So as you can see I have the work lined up… however I need to buy some more canvases so I will probably work on a few watercolors first because I have lots of watercolor paper right now.

I have found that deciding what to paint is half the battle. Part of the process of painting is finding the image I want to paint and organizing it in my head. I spend time thinking about what medium to use, canvas or paper, cropping of the image, colors that will be used. All of this is decided in my head before I pick up a paint brush. This is time consuming…. But one thing I do know is, I can’t start the painting until this process is complete or I will not be happy with the finished image.

So now you have a little insight into my process.

I will paint as much as I can when I get home in the evenings and on weekends. This is our busy season at work and we own our own business so we are working long days right now. One new thing that happened Kevin bought me the new tennis shoe the Stretchers… ( For Valentines Day) I have worn them 3 days so far and I have noticed that at the end of the day I seem to have more energy… I am excited.

Well goodnight all – Until next blog update be safe and warm.
