Have you ever had times when nothing seemed to be going the way it's supposed to and you know that you are largely responsible for it but for the life of you you don't know how to turn it around?

Have you ever had times when you get into a funk (not a good thing by the way) and you can't seem to get out of it?

If any of you recognise these symptoms and you have some idea of how to reverse or drive them away, PLEASE, respond and share your info.

Shh! Come take a Peek!

This is just a sneak peek at what i've been up to this weekend. The glaciers of Alaska are so majestic and beautiful. When I saw the photo that my friend Jilly-Ann took while on an Alaskan cruise I knew that I had to paint it. She gave me the picture to do just that.
I'm enjoying the experience of being there-even if just on canvas. (Will continue to dream of being there physically.)

I'm leaning towards the Heavens Declare as the title.

Tell me what you think of it or suggest another title.

Day 4

This is the plein aire work that I did yesterday at the spring bridge.
I plan to go back. There are so many interesting things to paint there.

Day 3

Heading out to La Retrette to do some studies of the spring bridge there. I hope it doesn't rain.
Although I think if it does rain I will paint anyway.

Will post pics from my daily sketchbook when I get home.

Day 2

Two paintings almost completed on Sunday.
Schedule is done. Goals set.

Nothing Doing

I am experiencing what I call creative malaise. A total lack of creative energy and motivation. What in other words is called laziness. No writing going on; except now of course. No painting going on. Nothing going on.
What is really sad though is that this is supposed to be my most creative time. No school, being home.

It's the holidays... Finally!!!!
You know what that means? Yes that's right!
I can paint all I want.
Things to finish, new ones to start, new ones to find.
Portfolio to update contests to prep for, galleries to approach.....
