Study of The Heart Tree

The inspirations for this study are several trees with heart-shaped leaves that grow in our neighbors yard.  Also, PULSE – the Fundraising event for the Children’s Heart Foundation - is in a week and a half, so I have hearts on the brain.  

This is my home but I cannot live here.

It is a study for a painting that may be in my show next year.  In and of itself, it is a finished piece.  But it is not what I had in mind for a finished painting.  So, I will do more drawings, paintings and studies.  As a friend keeps telling me, “Onward and Upwards!”

Welcome to!

For my first blog, I am going to challenge myself by completing a painting a week on gessoed cardboard! This idea was inspired by Duane Keiser's 'A Painting A Day'.  Every wednesday there will be post of the completed painting.  Enjoy!  If you like, why don't you do this challenge with me! ;-)
