Lining A Field, 2007, Oil on Panel, 12x16
I must be brief today. The kids have only a half day of school and will be home around noon. If I were to actually get to work right away this morning, rather than fritter away the morning on the computer (like usual) I could get a respectable amount of painting done. So I am going to send you elsewhere, to check out a few blogs that I have been enjoying lately.
I have to put on my thinking cap when I visit Musings on Neurology and Lenitives in Simplistic Art Whatever Sunil Gangadharan is talking about over there is fascinating though and somehow always gets back around to art. His work is really interesting as well and worth a look.
Casey Klahn found me awhile ago and it seems we have much in common, including a similar color sense as well as an infatuation with pastels and Wolf Kahn. The photographs he has posted of pastels make me drool. Every time I visit The Colorist I come away swearing that I have to get out my pastels and spend some time with them again.
I don't recall how I came across Hazel Dooney's blog, Self vs. Self, but am sure glad I did. She is evidently a very successful and well known artist in Australia and I have the impression that she can kick some serious ass. If I knew her in real life, I am pretty sure I would be totally intimidated by her in a hundred different ways. From what I gather, she has worked primarily with enamel paints, but due to health issues she has recently switched to different mediums and I look forward to watching and hearing about that transition.
Now go visiting, but don't forget to come back to me, your first true (blog) love. Heh.
