I have started a new painting in the series of dried flowers. I thought I would try to post some of the attempts at this one as I go along.
Not sure if I will always remember to take a picture of each painting session but I will give it a try. It seems as though watching my own progress though a series of photographs of the painting sometimes helps me see where I might be going wrong or what needs to be rethought.

This was my next attempt in the Flower Series I have started. Again, I am trying to get some movement in the Petals. I am working from a variety of flowers I have dried over the summer. I really need some comments left on my blog, so please feel free to give me your thoughts on this recent direction of paintings!

I've been reading several other artists Blogs and decided I have relied too much sometimes on photo's I've taken. While they certainly are convenient and are my orginal photos I feel as though I really am not learning to see values well enough by trying to paint from them So, I've set up a still life box in my studio with lighting and hope to learn more about values. This is my first attempt with the still life box. I am going to number them as I go along and hopefully will see an improvement in my style. I'm trying to find "my voice" or painting style. So far I have been less then happy with my style of painting.
