02/13/2005: "Finally, a start..."
Well, it was the most gorgeous weekend ever...some light fluffy snows but mostly bright sunny skies. I really felt like going skiing or snow shoeing or something outdoors but instead I stayed home and painted like a mad woman all weekend. I took this photo (handheld) from out my kitchen window...I think it looks nice; click on it to get it in wallpaper size.
The good news is that I had a goal to start 3 new paintings this weekend and I did. I've posted them below, just remember that they are just at the underpainting stage at the moment. The first and third images are 24"x36" and the middle one is 18"x24". So, along with the 30"x40" one of the woman up to her waist in the yellow grasses, this brings me up to four works in progress. If I can keep this pace up for another week or so, there's a chance I just might be able to pull this show off after all.
