Since I started my blog several months ago I have been so inspired by the many artists and friends I have met. I feel that I have grown so much as an artist with every post. Every time I paint I learn something, but I am also learning from each and every one of the artists that I follow. You are all an inspiration to me and I really appreciate your comments and for your interest in my work.
Because of my busy work schedule I have decided the painting a day thing is a bit to much for me as many times I get home very late. However, I still have such a strong urge to paint and I really want to keep it up. What I have been trying to do is paint everyday, but for a shorter amount of time. Even if its only for a half hour or an hour I am still making progress and continuing to learn.
I have had time to think while on the train commuting to and from work and also have been trying to carry a camera for reference photos more often. So my painting references and ideas have been building up. Many of my paintings are already planned and vary in subject to keep it more interesting.
After finishing the portrait last week I decided I would like to paint something a bit different. The painting will be of a scene of the city of Chicago. One that I see every day as I walk to the train. I hope to be finished in a week or two so stay tuned. I hope to post something soon.
