Random Quote

It is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by. How else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment? for the moment passes, it is forgotten; the mood is gone; life itself is gone. That is where the writer scores over his fellows: he catches the changes of his mind on the hop. Growth is exciting; growth is dynamic and alarming. Growth of the soul, growth of the mind.
-- Vita Sackville-West

April - Day One

ETC:

The nice thing about acrylics is that I can rough sketch both position and size by "blocking in" the elements of a painting and then go over it later and correct it. It's at this stage that I can test colors and composition.

April - Day Two

I'm really enjoying this one, and I think it's mostly because I so love the colors going on. I've got Vivaldi and Mozart hangin' with me tonight while I finish this one, and I'm taking a break to go for a bike ride and get some clarity before I return to finish it.

ETC: Done for the night, and not quite finished.

Couldn't Sleep

Went to bed, and then got back up to finish it.

April Video Story

I put together a little video of my painting of "April," with background music by Arvo Part.

You can obtain a "print" of this painting by ordering it as a greeting card (8" x 5").
