be still
Be Still, oil and mixed media, 5×5 inches

Friday afternoon I was able to get a block of hours in my studio and was actually able to get things well on their way to being finished. The morning hours were spent on the computer doing correspondance, packaging up some journals, shipping, etc., etc. But the afternoon I got to paint.

Right now I have about 10 oil paintings in various sizes in progress, 1 encaustic in progress, and 1 acrylic. Sometimes I think I should just stick to one…but I love each medium for their own qualities. Maybe one day. But for now I like them all. It depends on my mood or what I envision for a particular painting.

I finished the painting above yesterday. I’ve painted that tree several times now. I can’t seem to get away from it. I feel like it has become my own personal symbol in a way now since I’ve painted it so much. One day I would like to do a really big one of it.

“one day” seems to be a theme for this entry.
