Daily painting is the greatest! I hope I'm not neglecting teaching in any way. It's been really slow in the studio with lots of cancellations and normally I would freak out. A note to all of you 'no shows' this week - call me! Just to let me know but that said I am having a ball painting every day.
And I have some good news. I think I am going to get to paint another signal box. On WILSHIRE AND WESTERN!!!!!! More later but it's part of the new Wilshire Center Arts and Architecture Art Walk. October 25th. Save the date.

I missed yesterday. At the end of the week I was so tired with all the classes. It was a really busy week- end with full introductory classes friday saturday and sunday. So I told myself that since I did two on saturday, I could go home on sunday when everyone left.
So it's a new week and I'm going to do a bunch of self portraits or portraits of anyone who wants to sit.
I figure they will get better and easier of I keep at it.

This morning I got up and had a new 'like' on my studio facebook page. The person sent me a little computer generated picture of these boxes just as a funny greeting. How could I pass up such a nice suggestion. So I decided that would be the subject of my daily painting today since I have the same boxes in the studio!

It would have been the easier thing to bail today. Saturday is killer for me. I teach figure drawing in the morning until 1pm. Then it's afternoon class and the last students left the studio at 6:30 pm. I was standing all day. But I just made myself start, then it was easy. This is a still life that Sarah and Karen set up. YELLOW. It was fun and I might again do it again tomorrow. And get a better photo.

I'm back from New York full of resolve to get my daily painting back on track. So here's the first. I'll just start with stuff that is around the studio. Like food! This on is 6" x 6" oil on canvas.
Maybe later on I'll write about why I haven't been painting. Mainly it's because I've been so focused on building up the studio teaching. I have a group of wonderful students but I know they are starting to wonder why I''m not working. This is my attempt to have a better balance.
