First Daily Painting Post
"Standing Alone" oil, 6x9", $100
I have decided to start a new blog, along with some new ideas and artistic paths that I want to take. I am going to be doing daily, or more likely, "almost daily" paintings. These will be small paintings, mostly done in oil, which I think will help me work on various painting issues. I have been following several wonderful daily painters, whose work you can find on the side of this blog.
I will be closing down my old blog, www.themuseandbeyond.wordpress.com after a while. You can go over to that site and see older work. You can also go to my website, which I will soon be updating, www.elainehurst.com.
The painting above is one that was done in the painting class that I have been taking for several years. Most of the time, spring and fall we paint outdoors, but in the winter we paint indoors, working on specific painting issues. I have been working on color relationships, value relationships, and various other issues. Rocks have become an "easy" subject to use to work on these things.
You may see some more rocks showing up, along with some small still lifes. Enjoy!
