Pigment Foraging | Late Summer Means it’s Time for the BLUE!

I’ve been watchfully waiting for this week to begin. All summer, I’ve waited. Watching. And I was beginning to get a little worried that they might not be here this year.

Flora and Fauna, and Sacred Art

Sacred Art

Stacked Rocks Still Life Painting- the Process

The Process Story of “Ozark Rocks and Leaf” This painting started out plein air. The grandkids were visiting and wanted to go splash around at Felkins creek. While they played, I began painting these stacked rocks with a sycamore leaf. When it was time to leave, I wasn’t finished yet, so I snapped some photos …

Pigment Hunting at War Eagle

The pigment hunting trip was successful. Nothing really new or different in the colors, though. The rocks I found that would be easy to make pigment from were very similar to the rocks I find around home.
