Artist's studios

I haven't been painting too much lately. Just the usual busy summer activities. I recently returned from a trip to Eastern Oregon with my brother. If you are anywhere near Baker City do not miss the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center. Great exhibit and you can go to where the wagon wheel ruts still show up through the sage brush.

I'm always curious about artist's studios and found this wonderful site, so go have a look and enjoy it. I'm going to stop complaining about my 10x12 room now. OK, I'll complain less than usual!

How matters more than how long

Here is an article by Clint Watson from FineArtViews. Very good advice from today's newsletter. Near the bottom he talks about two rules so you'll know you're on the right track. And boy, am I on the right track right now! I do feel less confident over time and I do know there is still so much to learn. And number two I really am embarrassed about some of my older paintings. I'm thankful for white gesso so I can start over time and time again.

Now, as Clint says, go change the world.
