Time lapse painting

Valentine’s Day Tulips

Creativity in time lapse speed. Here’s a video I forgot to post where I was painting my Valentine’s Day tulips with acrylic paints on canvas paper.


Contemporary Charcoal Drawing Video

The beginning of a contemporary abstract painting…

Yesterday I was reorganizing the studio, going out to look at art supplies, and generally not painting anything at all. Some days you just can’t force the process–even with a painting deadline on the horizon. An artist learns to trust that ideas will happen only when the time is right…

But this morning the muse “magic” that totally defies logic kicked in at 5:30 am. Yes, creativity demanded attention–before coffee–before I felt even half-way human; yet, who am I to argue the time of day that inspiration decides to appear?

I figured if I could get this charcoal drawing idea out of the brain and on to my paper, then I could happily stumble to the kitchen and fix myself a cup of morning coffee.

So it happened. And the coffee was good. And the day will be filled with painting.
