Sometimes I work straight through on one painting, but a lot of times I start several paintings and then finish them all at about the same time. Do other artists work that way? It’s like I have starting momentum and finishing momentum and they’re different animals. Anyways, I’ve been in the starting mode lately. There are three paintings I’m really excited about – one of a landscape with some road workers, one of a landscape with red barns, and one of my son on a horse.
This has been a really busy month – traveling to South Dakota and Minnesota where we were guests at a big fun wedding that started at 2pm and then the party went into the night. When we got back my dad came for a visit. The highlight for me was a great kickball / softball game in the front yard with a lot of base-stealing, chasing, and laughing.
