The Creative Journey

"Caught in the Light"  
oil, linen on birch, 6x6", $100

#3 !  I feel like the turtle right now.... slow and steady, slow and steady....  I will pick it up and do several at a time, and get them posted several at a time rather than daily, but for now, I put them up as I do them. Not great masterpieces, but each painting teaches you something for the next one.  This is of our donkey, Chocolate Drop (aged 28), standing in our front field where the light is amazing in the evenings.  He turned all sorts of lovely colors, purple, aqua, gold.  Onward.....
