Small- medium and LARGE

My plan is actually working I think. Start a small painting as the "thumbnail" then go up from there. By the time I get to the big one I have more confidence and it's easier to paint. This big one was really fun. I guess because it was more simple.  Painting on the easel is definitely the way to go for me rather than flat. But I do see how Burridge would want to paint flat as juicy as he paints. Mine was dripping all over the place so I will still paint flat sometimes just to be in practice for the workshop in February. It kinda hurts my back though. I put wood icing on the bottom for the texture this time.
Now I have small, medium and large. So...
mission accomplie!

Today we are heading to the Isle of Palms for a week at the beach with baby Marc and his mama and daddy. We are looking forward to seeing him have fun in the sand.
 I will be back next week.
Y'all have a good one!

wow, these are fantastic. i have yet to get rolling on my DVD's. with moving meg back to collage, trips to the emergency vet and follow ups (i will post about that), cleaning my studio, getting ready for workshops...well you get the idea.

i read two great books "The Beach House", and "Swimming Lessons" both by Mary Alice Monroe that were set on the Isle of Palms. Made me want to go. Have a wonderful time with your family Marthy!

Nice paintings! Starting small and going large with paintings is an idea worth trying!
