Today I worked on three different paintings.
Since I paint with oils, I often have to let things dry before I can move on to the next section of that piece. That’s why I don’t just work on one painting at a time until it’s complete.
Here’s a few photos of my progress on the painting called “Bait Stand.” (I’m assuming these words on the sign are things that are used for bait??? )
Painting these words today reminded me of Mr. Fanning, my art teacher in 7th and 8th grade. I still remember how he taught us how to make block letters. That is a skill that I still use to this day. I learned all kinds of great art skills those two years I spent under Mr. Fanning’s instruction. I wonder what ever happened to him?
I’m thankful that I had great art teachers while in school when I was a kid. I know that’s a huge part of why I’m artist today.
So to all you Art Teachers out there… THANK YOU!
