Looking Forward, Looking Back

Kind of a slow day...contemplating this past year and all the possibilities that could await in 2011. How odd that sounds "Twenty Eleven".

Husband and grandson doing some work around the ranch on the tractor cleaning up some things, breaking up the beaver dam burning, as it is still too dry in our county.

And, happily, me in the studio, even with nothing momentous going on. All work now has the varnish, hangers and wire on it. Some distributed to one venue or another accounted for so I won't send it out to the wrong place..........AND a new canvas with ground drying.

What am I going to do with this new 48 x 48?? Maybe continue on with my 'meandering'. That's as good a thought as any I think. I need to stay away from definate horizons for awhile just to keep from feeling like all I am painting lately is landscapes in whatever form they may take. BUT, my main plan is to let the canvas, the paint and my intuition take over. The most fun is in the start and in the end.....all that 'in between' struggle between me and the canvas is just something that has to happen. I really wouldn't have it any other way.... I trust that it will resolve itself in time.

As most of us are looking forward and looking back, I want to wish you all a wonderful, fulfilling NEW YEAR .... TWENTY-ELEVEN. Bring it on! See you on the other side.



  1. Lol, it was good to see that another artist only really loves the start and the end of a painting, haha. I think the all important in-between is just sooo boring. I thought I was the only one, I don't know why with this big huge World I would think that.. but I did. I enjoy your blog and I want to wish you and yours a Happy and Creative New Year!

  2. Ha ha... Hi Connie. You have some great looking waxes there. Yeah, it just hit me as I wrote that post that I love the new beginnings and the endings of paintings...when they finally come together. I had never thought about it that much before.
