About the "On My Easel" Blog

As an artist who is sparked by the whimsy of Muse, I'm often unable to finish a painting or project before inspired to another start. This method of sketching out the basics of a painting, especially, worked well for years; I'd develop ideas during my most creative times to finish later when the conceptualizing phase wasn't running so hot. This was a most excellent method for getting through "dark" or "down" time, and created a balance in the studio.

Recently, health issues have kept me from finishing out many paintings and other creative projects for quite a while now, leaving a lot of UFO's (UnFinished Objects). So, since I'm feeling more spunky, I thought it was high time to bring some of those projects back to light. I thought to myself, what better way to highlight an unfinished art project than to share it in a blog! Hopefully visitors will get to follow along on some projects and see them through to a final stage, ready for new homes at last. I've respected these projects enough to hang on, so I look forward to getting back to work on them.

I have blogs for different topics at different places. This becomes consuming, so I'm going to make this my only blog for art, with the exception of my Spiritkeepers Blog for hand painted stones; even though sites where I have membership may offer blogging services. I'll also be transferring in some entries from my old blog. Be sure to check links in the side bar area, if you'd like to know more about me and my locations on the Net.
