Sharing my process

Palette and painting. I am always looking. I am a person who stares and squints. We drove through the mountains and I just stared out the window the entire time. I love the colours this time of year and the various greens and dark greys and purples. I just knew I would come to the studio inspired. I don’t always oil paint, sometimes I use acrylic, sometimes watercolour. But I do something everyday. I am a visual glutton. I am working on this oil painting now, it is in it’s very early stages and maybe not pretty or done enough to share but I want to anyway. My paintings go through so much, the end result might be very different then what you see below. The beginning is so good and sometimes the paintings are so clean they almost seem too good to touch but they are not finished. I have to get at them and make a mess of them and keep working. That’s how they get depth and meaning. I am not a one layer painting kind of girl.
