Does the weather effect your creative inspiration?
No... I'm serious, does it? 

Yesterday was a cold and rainy day. 
Luckily I had plans for a few of my friends to come by and paint with me! 


We painted from 10-12, and then had lunch together. 
After everyone had left, I did not return to the studio... I returned TO BED! 
It may be that my painting partner had LOTS more energy than me,
 but honestly I think it was the rain that made me want to sleep instead of paint!

This morning I woke up before the sun! I found myself in the studio at 5:00AM!
I had this grand idea to start a new 30x30 canvas... But first I had to just finish up a few things on the two paintings I have been working on.

So I added a little more color to this painting and then signed it. Now it was time to start my 3 day long finishing process! Step one, add a layer of acrylic medium. 

Now I took out the second painting. I decided that the "sunflowers" were making me hungry... I couldn't decide if they looked like bagels or donuts, either way, they had to go! (see image below)
 I then decided to add some wild flowers on the far hill. 

FOUR HOURS LATER... I still haven't started my 30x30 canvas!
This second painting is definitely coming along S-L-O-W-L-Y!!!
It has already evolved 3 times too. I do love a good mystery,
 but I hope this doesn't turn out to be one of those paintings that torment me!
 ( you know what I'm talking about!)

Well... I'm taking a short break, but that's it for my blogging adventures for the day!
Have FUN today whatever you decide to do!

  1. Love it Kim! How do you get such a thick coat of gloss on your paintings, pour medium? See you Sat at Hairspray!
