“Meadow House”

Standard

Hi there!  I wanted to share my latest completed painting. I need to say first off that I have had some technical difficulties with this post.  I am still learning how to use WordPress, as I am still a newbie, so I apologize.  I wanted ALL of these pictures to be in a descending order; however, for some reason I had ‘issues’ with this particular post and there are two different formats for my pictures.

I have been working on this piece for several days and just finished it very early this morning.  As I began….starting with a sketch…I took progression photographs so you could join me on the journey of this piece.  I always find it fascinating to begin with a void…a white, blank canvas…and then progress systematically from sketch to final work.  Often, I will complete a painting and pause to ask myself, “How did I get here?”  It is perplexing and sometimes strange to me that I can produce any scene at all.  I wonder if many other self taught artists feel the same way sometimes?  If you are self taught, perhaps you want to share your experience regarding this ‘phenomenon’ with me?  I would love it if you did.  When I have photos, such as I present below (and above), it provides me with the answers that sometimes evade me.  It is interesting (to me at least) and helpful to see the steps that I took in order to reach what I view as a ‘finished’ painting.  I hope you enjoy the journey.

Have a super Weekend,

    • I would LOVE to see that one Rick! I have had several thoughts on painting on hand saws in the very recent past. I have never done it; however, I know a certain genre of people love this type of work. Do share love! Cheers!

    • Thank you so much Liam. Your blog really, really is helpful to me and my learning process as I am a completely self-taught artist….I have never even taken an art class; although, I want to badly! I read everything you post. You are a gifted and talented artist and your work is truly beautiful. Thank you for sharing your expertise with the world.
