Just finished up this small painting. It was a bit different painting over dry paint. Most of my paintings are done wet into wet. But I still think it shows the joy of the moment. What a great body position! Only a 3 year old would be brave enough to leap into 10" of water! It amazes me.
One day Ironman, the next day Spiderman or maybe even Caption America. He is the greatest super hero of all because he is so versatile! I caught this moment when 'Ironman' was distracted by a hay wagon. Lots of strong sun and shadows on this day.
** I just keep hearing Ozzy singing Iron Man :o) **
I have been reading Austin Kleon's "Show Your Work", and I found it very interesting. I didn't actually finish it because I gave it away before I finished. I gave it to someone else who I thought would be interested in it. I might have to borrow it back some time. I don't usually share too much about myself or my process so this is out of my comfort zone. I might only attempt this is small bits for now. But here is what is on my easel right now. In progress. I like it so far...
This is what I'm reading. I found it very interesting and full of ideas. I like books that make me think about things in a different way.
I'm slowly getting myself organized in my studio. There are so many other things to get done around the house that I find it hard to focus on painting. But I did get a couple small ones done this week and have started a larger one. You should start to see new paintings more often.
I'm really looking forward to the autumn season here in our new house and town.
