20151009_123514-1I had an unplanned art lesson on Friday during the Open Studio session at The Studio.  My friend, Phil, with Caledonia Bed & Breakfast sent some guests over to paint.  This mother and daughter were delightful.  We had a nice visit while Hannah painted this marvelous little painting.  I hope to see them again when they are visiting our area.  Thanks Phil for thinking of The Studio as a destination for these two.

I get questions all the time about “daily painting”.  The most often asked is “Do you paint every day?”  And the answer is “almost”.  When I first joined the daily  painting movement I did paint every day. And I completed a different small painting everyday….for a long time.  I did this for about 4 years.  Then I started working on larger paintings and while I painted every day I didn’t complete one each day.

But then I started offering other types of classes besides painting so it required me to create in other formats (like crocheting, multi-media, etc.) to prepare for classes so now my answer is that I create something everyday.  It may not always be a painting like it was in the beginning but I do something creative each and every day.

Right now I have a couple of paintings that I am working on that still need a little work to be finished.  Here are a couple.  You will hopefully see the finished paintings soon.

Olivia was one of my first young students.    She was so tiny.

Now she is 8 and she came to me this week for a couple of private lessons so that she could paint “Cat”.  I was thrilled at how much she remembered from our time painting together before.

Here is the reference photo we used.  Olivia did a marvelous job with Cat.  It looks terrific.

Private lessons are available for children or adults by contacting kwalker@doubledogdesigns.com .

CAM07564A few days ago I posted Geraniums in the Window (see it here) and said that I needed to touch it up a little  more.  I did that last night.  I darkened the shadow under the window and added some texture to the wall.  Also, I hit the flowers with a little more light.  Now it’s finished.
