Headlands


Most painting bloggers I suspect, feel a mounting impulse to post something even if there isn`t any newly complete work. It`s been a week.
This is a couple of years old now and it was painted from a tiny sketch I drew while visiting the redwoods and the Northern California coast in 1988. Even something small and half hearted can bloom into a more realized painting many years into the future.

Today my husband and I hiked Cascade Head trail north of Lincoln City. We had lik in your "Headlands" this kind of perspective.
It is very stressful and compulsive having to post paintings every day and it is nice to do incomplete sketches like I did today and yesterday at Drift Creek Falls, I am not posting them because they are not like the series on reflections that I am doing now.

I really enjoy the perspective on this. And, yes, once into the swing of regular posting, it's tough to drop out for any length of time. But my friend, Dawn, at Vulture Café has a seal in her sidebar - B.W.O. (Blogging Without Obligation). I try to keep that in mind!

Lovely painting! Interesting thoughts on the blogging. I purposely decided to post twice a week when I started, summer hit and I changed that to once a week. It seems to be working so far, I never seem to run out of things to post. I guess being conscious of what you want to do vs what you think should do is important.
