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.

If you're an artist, I'm guessing you might go through what I sometimes do with paintings.
I have an idea, references, model, or wonderful landscape before me, and excitement for the painting. As I begin the piece, I think, "This is going to be the best painting I've ever done". After a little while working on it my thoughts shift to, "This is the worst painting I've ever done!"
As I continue painting on it, I think I may be able to get it to work. A little later I start to realize it's not half-bad.
