Welcome to my Art Blog! I paint or draw most weekdays and sometimes finish a painting a day. I fondly call them my "Postcards from Paradise" because it's such a beautiful place the Lord made here for us.

I can't say enough how inspiring your life studies are. Thank you so much for your lovely comment.

Thanks for the kudos, Suzanne. It always encourages me when artists whose work I love find my own work to be enjoyable. You've made my day!

I needed to hear some good feedback today! I've had to deal with several problems (a shipped package somehow was lost so I had to refund $ to the customer, plus a bad headache this afternoon).

I guess all that is not so bad but the online support for my work does mean a lot, especially on days like today. Thank you for taking the time to drop by!

With this title you should add a few falling leaves. A nice drawing!

I guess so, Bill! The model's name is Autumn but some falling leaves would be fun. Maybe next time.
