This is the first post on my blog. It is appropriate that I start my blog with this little daily painting since I painted it in Karin Jurick's Workshop. Karin is an inspiration! I hope this blog will be a record of my journey as an artist. My goal is to post about 3 times a week with new paintings. More often when I am in "daily painting" mode like in the summer when I am not in art class. I am learning so much every day: about painting, about publishing the paintings, which includes learning to photograph and edit the photos as well as create a blog on which to post. It is an adventure.
