I also worked on my Bruges painting. We (the Gateway Gallery artists) are working on a collaboration of sorts. Greg Matchick has provided each of us with one of his beautiful photographs of Bruges, Belgium called Three Swans in a Canal and we are creating our own pieces inspired by his photo. I am a little intimidated by the project, but I am really enjoying it too. Using his photograph has made me stretch my color muscle in a wonderful way. The painting is very abstract though and I, of course, am already stressing that people will think it is ugly. Oh well, nothing ventured, nothing gained right?

Studio To Do List
I had a novel thought today. I made a to do list for my work in the studio. I ALWAYS make lists for the office because I lack focus, but it never occurred to me to make one for the studio. (unless I have a major deadline) So today I painted on the sanded over bad name callin' painting and I am just loving it. It has somehow turned into this lovely abstracted sunset or moonrise. Is that a word?
