Weekly Art Auction

Getting back to my weekly art auctions. This week’s auction is a daily journal painting from 2007. During this period, I custom built several wood frames for my daily journal paintings. I wanted a frame that I could paint on so the painting could be continued into the frame. This was the result of that experiment. If memory serves me, I did 8 of these paintings. This is the only one left! Click on the image to go to the auction page. Thanks for looking and happy bidding! 🙂

I started and finished two daily journal paintings today. My daily journal series is an ongoing series of small, quick paintings I create as warm ups to keep the creative juices flowing. Today, it’s feeling a bit like winter coming on, so the color palette is reflecting the weather. COLD! We are expecting snow this weekend here in Albuquerque. Yesterday’s wind storm tore the roof off our neighbor’s large shed, including several layers of the cinder block walls it was attached to. Luckily, our chicken coop right next door wasn’t touched. Poor chickens must have been frightened silly!
