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. Picture in picture! Wonderful demonstration of how you captured the light and form – just perfect!

  3. 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!
