Now that I am working out of a home studio, I have begun painting on large, unstretched canvas, and it's exhilirating. Using my whole arm and body to create brushstrokes makes the act of painting so much more physical.

As I now get into the third week of the 100 Day Project, I like looking back at all the pieces to see how things evolved,  and what are the common threads. Line drawings were generally not something I incorporated into my paintings, and I've found that I really love th...

I have turned my focus to painting for some portion of every day, and have dived into the 100 day project.

This was started by Elle Luna a year ago, and features a wonderful community of artists on Instagram. All you have to do is create something and post it every day....
