i have decided that this whole blogging thing can really be to my advantage. i'm not really sure who all reads this, but i know that some people do. i am trying to get back into painting, but some days just don't want to do it.

there is a collective art show in october at hal & mal's that i have agreed to participate in...if i have two paintings that i want to hang by then.
we'll see how this goes. in the beginning of the summer my mom let me take a lesson on oils from bill wilson. he is amazing and i learned so much. here is the piece that i did with him, but is not finished yet. hopefully i will finish it soon and post it for y'all. this is my first oil and first portrait...i'm not sure if i could recreate it without him! it is of one of my precious little girls from peru. the picture doesn't capture just how adorable she is!! so, i have decided that y'all get to be my motivation...aren't you so excited.
