I am an artist based in LA (but from the good 'ol Midwest). This blog is a record of my life as a painter/artist. It is here to help me keep my place and motivation, ground me to learning and be a connection to other artists.

Sneak Peek Paintings 32 & 33
Here is a sneak peek of the two paintings started this past weekend. Both are in need of a lot more work but seem to me to be good starts.
I was inspired by the beautiful fall weather as well as by a woman who is blogging (can't find the link to her blog on my google reader for the life of me right now but will share when I do find it) a daily portrait painting. She uses a different base color for every portrait. Don't know why I haven't tried this. In the past I have stuck w/ a dark, nearly-black base or blank white canvas A brick red base color is being used for the painting on the left & the painting on the right (which is slightly farther along) had a pumpkin orange base.
