What's On The Easel

Busy. Youngest child getting married today.
So here's a quick roundup of art projects in the works.

Mountain Goat underpainting.
Have to put his overcoat on, and sky and he'll be good to go.

Calla Lily underpainting. My first attempt at a flower painting in a long time. Not enamored with painting flowers, but I need still life practice. A tulip came out much better. I was going to paint a lemon and lime, but ended up using them for dinner. The fate of most still life subjects I suspect. Paint fast.

Woodblock for the first print in my "36 Views of Devil's Tower series. I actually have View 2 carved and ready to print, because it's on lino. Faster and less splinters.

And finally, a one-two punch of apple blossoms.

Before I even had time to paint them, let alone photograph them, they opened, they bloomed, now they're gone.

Ah well, the lilacs have yet to bloom. When they do, I'll be waiting, brush in hand.

I can't wait to see more about the Devil's Tower series - last time I was there was before my daughter was born....so like 17 years ago. Oh, yeah, now I feel old. Congrats on the marriage for your child! Hope it's a beautiful thing.

Kathleen - Trying to get two prints done this week. We'll see. Then there would only be 34 to go!
One down, one moved away. Now I feel old. :)

Are more Corgis in your future to fill the empty house?

Anon- Nope. Another male, and another kitty. :)
