Art Tip - Draw for You
Draw what makes you happy and what you're interested in, not what
you think others want to see. Sticking to subjects, themes and mediums that are
appealing to you will result in a more enjoyable experience.
"Luncheon of the Boating Party", painted in 1881 by French impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir, is housed in The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C. The painting depicts a group of Renoir's friends relaxing on a balcony at the Maison Fournaise along the Seine river in Chatou, France.

Welcome to my blog! The blog is intended to record my journey into the creative world of art. I've decided to challenge myself to work on my art every day and create at least two finished pieces each week. My goal and hope is to explore ideas and techniques and push myself beyond my current comfort zone. Any of you who wish to comment or join me while pursuing your own art interests and exploration are welcome to experience this creative journey.
