Painting in Progress, Sunset in Progress

Painting in Progress  Stage 1

Stage 2

Stay tuned for the continuing saga of this painting. I'm on a journey.

Speaking of journeys - My husband and I had an E ride for the eyes coming home from Oakhurst yesterday. We saw an amazing sunset happening. It changed with every turn of the mountainous road. It was like listening to a symphony all the way home. Darn, wouldn't you know I didn't have my good camera with me but I did have my antiquated cell phone. Here are the photos I took.


In a way isn't it like creating a painting that has its way with you. It controls you from beginning to end. It captures you, like what you're doing or not. It beckons you and says just keep going. Thoroughly frustrated you keep on going. Your muse is sitting on your shoulder chuckling because she/he knows that  it will turn out to be a satisfying experience, maybe even awesome.


  1. This looks great so far Anita. What kind of a surface are you working on? It looks like a board of some kind?

  2. Thank you. You are right, it's on Ampersand Pastelbord.
