a whimsical little painting

Hello there! I had a little painting party of the weekend with my friend, Amy, which motivated me to finish my Pin-Mill painting! Amy is a graphic designer who is dabbling with paint for the first time, so it was fun to work on my painting while giving her some basic tips over my shoulder ;] As I mentioned before, there is still one more painting I want to do in my whimsical series, a couple of incomplete paintings that need completing, & four (FOUR!) paintings I've been commissioned to make. Whew! Hopefully I can dig myself a little bit out of this creative hole before the school year starts! How was your weekend? XO.

  1. As an artist myself, I enjoy reading Philip Koch's sensitive writing about Edward Hopper and Andrew Wyeth, who along
    with Whistler and Rothko, are my favorite American painters.

    I don't live in the United States but have traveled and passed a short time there. But even with the little time spent
    in your beautiful country, especially in small-town America, I can relate to some of the poetical feel that Hopper and
    Wyeth had captured in their art, which is for me part of the attraction of their paintings.

    Browsing at the other day, as I do now and then, I find a good selection of Edward Hopper's work, ,in the
    big archive of Western Art, that customers can order online for canvas prints and even hand-painted, oil-painting
    reproductions can be made and sent to them.

    Hopper's surrealistic and depersonalized world is there again. Timeless, yes, as it is still there now in the roadside cafes
    and diners that I ate at all over America.
