Painting by Sally Rosenbaum and Myra 'the week' . . .
What a beautiful painting by Sally Rosenbaum. Like many other artists she is truly as they say 'one of the hardest working people in the business'. Her paintings really tell a story. I would call her a modern day Cassatt with her 'women reading' series. Also, this was a pretty good week for me. I truly enjoyed discovering watercolor board and experimenting with watercolor and pastel. I received wonderful encouragement and enlightenment this week - especially from PM and MP (who turns out to also live in Texas). Now, I won't lie to you . . . I wish that I had done this painting by Sally Rosenbaum. Well, I always have a goal for the Spring and Summer. I was surprised by the sense of joy and satisfaction I felt in using pastel and watercolor. This summer my goal is to teach myself more about these mediums. I want to do beautiful paintings that tell a story. And, I want to follow MP's advice who said 'don't be afraid to 'attack the canvas' with bold, beautiful, color'. And I will . . . right after my prune juice vodka-tini and a nap . . . see you next week . .
This is my new journal about becoming an artist and the people, places, photos, books, money saving coupons, doctor's visits, cartoons, snacks, pets and toys that inspired me along the way. Why? Because I want to be an artist like my father.
