Day 137- To the library- and what I have learned so far

Day 137- To the library-
sketchbook/mixed media
What I have learned from this project so far:
1. I love taking my time with paintings, one day just ISN'T ENOUGH!
2. Paintings are lovelier when they surprise you
3.Painting from photographs is useful, but sometimes boring, and restrictive
4. I have to paint the figure as an explorer in a new land
5. I paint because I want to love again what I already love
6. I haven't even begun. There is so much to paint.
From this day forward I will not be posting paintings here but only sketchbook pages. (Never happened! I think I lied!)

I love that you are always learning new things about your work. I love that you stretch yourself. I love that you choose to share your work with us. :)

Dear Holly,
thank you so much for your very kind words. I have been going through a bit of a rough patch lately, so your comment was very meaningful to me, and really appreciated. Many thanks;-)

I love this sketchbook page, it's so loose such a different feel to your paintings - I love them too, and really admire how productive you are and how long you have stuck at the project! Best wishes, and look forward to seeing where you go next!

SO sorry Ive not been over to visit for toooo long Annamaria.
Sorry to hear you've been dealing with stuff... aint that in the air. Sobering times for many reasons and it sure helps to have art-making as a form of life-replenishing somewhere to go to!

Take care and .... ooh... I loved this one.
Love how utterly differently, uniquely you can approach working with paint!
