Project Saturation

Since my last blog post, I've been working on quite a few projects. Anyone else like that? I need to work on more than one project at a time. It's the only way I stay motivated to finish what I started.

First came the poppy project were a few ladies from our art/craft group got together to make over 400 paper poppies for a memorial day event. Let me tell ya that project brings new meaning to the term "seeing red".

Then there was the Vietnam spring break trip where my family spent a week in Saigon. It was this time that I took the opportunity to start a travel art journal. I don't know why I never thought of it before but now is a good time as any. I will post a few of those entries from time to time.

I have just started a new project. A commission piece to be done on a 24 by 36 inch canvas. So far the biggest canvas I have ever painted on. So far the background is done, and I am waiting for it to speak to me to tell me what to do next. Yes me an my canvases talk.

              Here are the first two layers of the canvas.

 There seems to be a fish emerging below. Let's see how it goes.
