painting and thoughts

i have been painting, but, doing more painting in my many art journals and not on canvas.

i decided that needed to get back to paint larger. to work how i have been but not in a journal.

i started putting paint down. starting with a canvas that had already been used and had a painting already on it.

i started with colors i like and wanted to see on the canvas. i have had a pink passion lately- wanting to add it to almost everything. this is a peek at the painting in progress.

sometimes my progress takes so much time....i envy people that can just sit down and paint up a storm and be done. my process is slow and sometimes very wet- that takes time to dry appropriately. i normally have to paint on several projects at a time, so that things can dry in between time.

as i was working on this painting, i was thinking to myself that uncertainty was trying to creep in and take away my progress.

i simply kept listening to my little inner voice, kept painting, and i am liking this.....uncertainty can just keep walking.


  1. I love your painting, Kristin, regardless of substrate. I love your layers. I'm struggling with that now. I'm afraid to paint over something that looks good from the start. I don't know what to do after the first layer or two. Have a great weekend! xo

  2. I absolutely love your work. I wish I had more word to just let you know how amazing it is, and how much I enjoy my visits to your blog. Amazing!!!


thanks for your comments- i love hearing from you!!
