I did manage to finish one painting of my two dogs - Baxter as a puppy. It has been hard keeping up with my training at my other job. Three more days and I can get back to painting.

Study of the catacombs in Paris,buried dead, bones that have been stacked to create macabre structures under ground. Also a street scene I have been working on for awhile. I have about three or four additional paintings in various stages. I am trying to remain consistant in my style, but, at the same time show a range of subject matter. I have just been hired for a full time (non art related, boohoo) job...hoping that It will not interfear too much with the pace that I have been painting. I think, in order to grow (and I feel I have been growing) I need to continue to paint dailey to refine my talent.

I finished another painting...I wrote earlier that I took this photo in England around 1985...couldn't figure out how to do it...not enough confidence I suppose. I always have the inkling to want to keep adding...I have found out that I can refine the image more, but then it doesn't look like my style - so I am trying to leave them alone when they reach a point that I like them.

were very bland and basically the same color. I am happy with the results. I feel relieved that I was able to finally see on canvas what was in my head. I am starting another painting today from a photo I had originally took as a painting subject - year ago in England. I never felt like I knew how to paint it. Lately, I have become infused with a new vitality and passion for my painting - I guess that it why I am revisiting some of my old photo studies. I feel that there is nothing that I can't do.
