Let it rain...
I've been thinking ahead to the October Autumn Artisan Show that I will have a booth in, pondering the subject matter that would fit with the season and found myself in a fun little world of painting umbrella scenes. I've done six so far and it's been a blast! Pushing myself to make good choices with values, colors, edges…all the topics I've covered in my blogging so far. A new discipline I've been trying is to use decisive brushstrokes. I promise you, it is so hard! "Piddling" is what I am more likely to do…dabbing, correcting, not using enough paint. But I am paying attention to my teachers and role models, watching how they do it and loving the painterly results. Doing a series like this is giving me ample opportunities to challenge myself. These are rough photos, but what do you think?

I love these Wendy! I think whether you are decisive or piddly, they represent the Northwest wonderfully! I am proud of you and the growth you have shown since you made that fateful phone call to take a beginning art class!! Good for you!!

Hello! My name is Wendy and I am passionate about oil painting! Whether in the studio or out in Mother Nature, I get lost in the experience of capturing on canvas the moment and the feel of what I am painting. I pour my love and energy into every single piece of artwork and I hope it shows! This blog is a place where I can use words to talk about art, painting, life, faith, things that make me laugh, and things that inspire. I love every response, so don't be shy about leaving a comment...
