In Progress

Time to take a break from photographing and measuring old paintings, and – worst of all – typing the information into the media section of the website!

A couple of weeks ago I painted on a day that felt like the last moments of winter and the beginning of spring. I decided to photograph my progress over the couple of hours it took to complete the picture.

I have never done this before, and frankly it was odd, a little like someone watching over my shoulder.  But it is interesting to me after the fact, also providing a permanent opportunity to  ask that annoying question, “Should I have stopped sooner?”!

  1. A privilege to watch an act of artistic creation in progress, especially for regular mortals who lack any artistic talent.

  2. Because I am so engaged with working process in art, I loved this segment the best so far…especially because the results are equally as marvelous as the steps toward it!
