I'm back to painting miniatures again, It's a different mind set. It hard for me to jump back and forth from large to small. So, I will paint 30 or so, and then switch back to painting larger paintings.

Early in my career, like most beginning painters, my colors choices were more pale and Pastel like. It wasn't a choice that I made. It was more a fact that I was afraid to use really strong colors. But those days are long gone.

I really am a lazy painter, I always look for the fastest way to do something. I don't use masking fluid unless it it absolutely necessary. In this painting, to avoid having to use masking fluid, I painted the foliage on the large tree first. Then I painted the painting around it being careful to leave some of the white of the paper for highlights.. I put the tree trunks in last.

I have been experiencing a painting rut presently. I am having to try to force myself to paint. I certainly have been here before. It happens a few times a year. I think the mind just needs some rest sometimes. I have a busy mind, I have a hard time understanding the idea of relaxation.

Painting tip:
Look closely at the leaves on the tall trees. I use a large round brush, I put the tip on the paper, then I bend the brush against the paper. It leaves some interesting shapes. Some are like a forked vee, mark. Perfect for a leaf.

We had our first snow today. There was a 2 hour delay for the schools. It's now 10 a.m. and the snow is already, almost gone. That's the kind of snow I like. I get to enjoy the snow, without having to shovel a very long driveway.

I am in a phase right now where painting is difficult. That is not a good thing, especially during the shopping season and sales are up. Right now I am having to force myself to paint, and the process is more laborious. It is just part of the emotional ups and downs of being an artist.
