Thursday!

Something I hear a lot is.."you are always doing something". It's true, some sort of daily art thing is kind of a habit for me now. I remember a woman (Cindy Bilotti) who came to one of our meetings a long time ago ...she told us that she had a room devoted to painting. She further told us that leaving her paints out (squeezed onto a palette) in that room was "key". Just having the paints "out" and always available was something she did to remind her to paint whenever she could. I, too, leave my paints out (continually) and I know it is one of the reasons I use them.

This might be my favorite of your 'print' paintings. I was really struck by how you caught the light on him in this one.

Ce genre de méli-mélo artistique me fascine...
L'art de l'écriture rejoint celui de la peinture pour ne faire qu'un. l'union de deux âmes... intéressant.
gros bisous

I love visiting your blog! Your work is top rate and is so very interesting! I'm going to give painting on printed paper a try. As always, thanks for the inspiration!

This guy is whacked out crazy good, I venture to say one of the best figures I've ever seen you do. How come you can't do this on Wednesdays?

Thank you, Sarah, Hallie, Jane, Sharon, Manel, Graziano, Maritza, Sherry, Michael, Nancy, Martine, Linda and Carrie! You guys are so great to stop by with kudos--it makes my day! Thanks very much for your thoughts and encouragement! :)

Celeste Bergin said...

haha Carrie, I beg to differ with you...I've had the occasional success of Wednesdays too, but thanks for your feedback!

Sometimes just showing up starts something wonderful and having the paints available is one of the best ways to get things going!

Have you read Julie Cameron's, Vein of Gold and The Artist's Way? It is a treasure.

Your work is a treasure, too, and I wish you every success.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I look forward to coming back here again to see what you've got going on!
