9"x9"x1.5" Oil & Mixed Media on Cradled Panel

My visit to the Los Angeles area included a good week in Malibu, California. There is something so special about being on the coast and seeing the ocean and feeling the sea breezes. It is magical and made me just want to grab a hammock and spend a lazy day in the sun.

Wishing and doing are two different things because I spent my time working on two new DVD videos. The whole video making process was challenging and tons of fun. The focus for each video is on how to find the inspiration to paint that which is meaningful to the artist. Following how I find my inspiration will hopefully help others find their own inspiration. I show how to bring found inspiration back to the studio to paint what is true to your own heart. The painting, "Lazy Day" in this post is a demonstration painting I did for the first video. I will send an update in a future post when the DVD videos are available. It has been, "A Painting Day".
