A journal of my painting experiences, including the good and sometimes challenging things that comes with it.

In the Moment
Working outdoors has its challenges, not the least of which is the changing light. I tend to paint rather slowly and often, after working on a piece for a few hours, I pull everything together at the end.
Sunsets are a different matter altogether. You have to be fast and spontaneous, make decisions and stick with them, right or wrong. Because, if you delay, all is lost because the sun goes down. I can't say I was entirely successful with this little piece, but it was an excellent exercise in making decisions. I'm anxious to do it again.
My name is Jeanne Echternach and I am an artist.I've been painting for just about as long as I can remember. My blog is a forum to discuss painting and the whole messy process of creating art. I love to paint and love to talk about it too, so join in the conversation and have fun!
