Well....... "I am back".

This one has been a little bit scary. Sure, a year ago I would just think that it was normal, and I wouldn't paint for several months or years, but since I really have giving it all my attention the last year, I was worried that I lost the drive. I worked and failed with 2 larger paintings (tried to paint forest with early snow, but wasn't pleased with the result. I have also had a lot to do regarding getting things together with the company that I have given a license agreement to, going through photos of paintings, buying a new camera and rephotographing some to get better quality photos. I am very curious what it will look like and what will come out of it.

I will do a lot of 8" x 8" or 12" x 12" paintings with things I am familiar with, so I really get painting a daily drive and passion again.

  1. Welcome back! Don't you hate it when you try something new but don't get the result you imagined? I keep those paintings in my studio so I'm forced to keep looking at them until I figure out why they didn't work. Sometimes the subject just wasn't suited for painting, sometimes I didn't have a strong composition, sometimes I just messed up the paint application. Once I find the lesson, I paint over the failed piece and move on!

  2. That's what i was thinking too ( like Scott). When the failed painting is dry, I just paint it over and move on. Masterpieces happen, but it is difficult ( or impossible) to do one every time, the important thing is to enjoy doing what you do.

  3. Wow! Back already! That's great. I'm sorry to hear the 2 paintings didn't work out... very frustrating.
    Welcome Back.
    Happier Painting...!
