work in progress...

what is on your easel today???


i am working on these four angels right now...i am teaching a creativity workshop titled "Artistic Journey with Kindred Spirits" at John C. Campbell Folk School the weekend of January 23rd...i am doing these for sale in the gallery while i am there...

i am totally taken with the angel on the upper right...i paint intuitively...with little pre-planning and let each figure develop as it will...the background is venetian plaster (one of my favorite grounds to paint on)...i love to work on several paintings at once so i can let things dry before i mess them up...i have a tendency to do that if i paint one at a time...how do you work???

on a personal note...after 3 years on the market and $125,000 worth of reductions...there is finally someone interested in my home...please lift a prayer that it may sell quickly...

That is so crazy - I instantly took to her, too! Before I even read your post! It definitely has to do with her eyes, but also the colors and contrasts in the painting - she really is defined. Very pensive, not sad, just an observer, intuitive.

Aloha Rebecca,
I like the Angel at rest, she's sweet.
Blessings for your home sale, PEace, Kai

first...i love the tilt of their heads...like they are looking down upon us so lovingly.

second...i pray for that buyer to come through for you & a peaceful transaction!

Each one of them draws me in. I want to know what they each have to say!

Happy to have discovered your site and to hear your reflections on spirit and creativity.

I'm considering a spiritual direction training program .....was delighted to see that in your bio!
