Found Things

                                 Available at DPWS Auction

     Painting everyday is important, but sometimes it is difficult to do.
Often it is finding time and motivation to paint. I have two suggestions for that.
     First, find a friend to paint with, getting together with another artist will spark enthusiasm, because there is nothing better that bouncing ideas off another painter.
     Next setting up the perfect arrangement is great, but sometimes time simply gets in the way of that.  Face it I can easily spend an hour or more arranging and rearranging stuff.
So don’t be afraid to just paint the first thing you see that looks interesting.  The painting above is an example of that.  I was at my best friends house (a fellow painter), finished the work I had planned to do and had time left.  So I just glanced around the living room and started painting objects I randomly spotted.  The plant vase was on top of a shelf, the bottle and little house were objects in a cabinet.  I guess I just arranged them in my head, for some reason that was easier to do than really moving them physically around.
   Hope that these little ideas will get you going and those brushes moving.

What I looked at to do the painting........
