Oil Painting

I worked on this painting yesterday.  What does it need?  I have concluded that I do better working on several creative things at once.  Yesterday I crocheted, framed paintings, and painted.  Photos to follow.  The painting is not this dark so I may have to reshoot it.

Autumn in Ohio

 Last week we rented a cabin in Hocking Hills (Ohio) at Acorn Lodging and had a great relaxing time.  The leaves were not at peak yet but still beautiful.  We walked in the woods and listened to the crunch under our feet.  
We cooked on the back porch grill and of course, watched the debate.  The next day I woke up with the worst calf pain in my legs.  Guess who is out of shape.

I took a walk in Inniswood and shot this photo.  The oil painting (8 x 10) was painted in Steven Walker's oil class at MAC.  I have started another painting for class and several at home.

All By Myself

Hi Followers!  I am taking a course called "The Artist Way" from the book by Julia Cameron.  I have had many revelations in the past 6 weeks but the one that I am  feeling the most is the need for alone time.  I have always known that I needed alone time but the course validates that I am okay with that need and not unusual.  I get in touch with my feelings by writing the "Morning Pages" in the morning (not everyday..ooops).  This photo is taken along the banks of Hoover Reservoir close to the dam.  I sat in my car and just looked at the sparkle in the water while I wrote my morning pages.  I think I will paint this.
