It was time to paint the kitchen. I changed the color from a sage green to a cheerful blue. It kind of looks ‘beachy’ now. With that in mind, some of the artwork no longer looks good against the color. I have a small blank space that I want to try and fill with a piece of my own art. So what goes well in the kitchen? A still life. Let’s see if I can pull off painting something like this preliminary sketch. Or maybe that’s too cliche…. Hmmm.
I have put my cool little sketchbook from What Sandra Makes to good use. It’s perfect for pen and ink sketches and doodles. Here’s one I did last night while my cheese steak Stromboli was in the oven. It’s the Philadelphia skyline as seen from the Delaware River waterfront.
This sketch of a lone poppy in a field is going to be the basis for a painting. That’s right… I’ve been busy sketching, although I haven’t really posted anything in a while. I’m keeping the blog focused on writing going forward. However, my art work is a nice creative break from writing all the time.
