Honey Bee Painting Demo


Dreams help to motivate me. Picasso said, Everything you can imagine is real.I didn't sit in front of a bee hive and watch the bees go in and out but I did imagine it.

Just Paint More








Red Pear Still Life
About This Painting: I've always found red difficult to work with. If you wanted a lighter area you cant add white it will just make pink. Now that might work sometimes but more often its just not where you wanted the image to go. I have found that orange work wells. Now for the shadow it just depends on the subject and the light. In the above still life I used Transparent Red Oxide in some areas and in the very darkest areas of the pear I used purple.

I think each time I use red a get just a little bit better so as I always say the only way to become a better artist is jut to paint more.

So put the brushes to work.

TA A Challenge, Selling Art on Line

The first day of the TAA Challenge is here!

We are going to make it as easy as possible for you to participate in this challenge, to show you the absolute minimum that must be done in order to start selling art art online. Today's step? Simply publicly commit to the challenge. That's it.

Okay as you know,I already sell on line so why do this little eight day challenge? Because there might be something I could do better. Isn't there always something we can do better?

Right now I know that I may be with out computer access the last three days of the challenge but maybe I can fins a hot spot somewhere along my way. I hope they have ice cream okay I'm way ahead of myself, but ice cream works well into the challenge. I am really up for this if I get to blog where there is ice cream.
