Beginnings

Hmmmm… how to start this thing? Nothing more exciting… or terrifying… than a blank canvas.
Well, I can tell you my reasons for doing a blog. It’s not that I feel like I have anything more important to say than anyone else. Nor (nor? can I use that word? Is it still a word?)  that I actually like to write. Ugh. I would rather pull my teeth out. There are plenty of painters and teachers that have made it over that mystical ridge from aspiring to being. They can tell you what to do and why to do it. But, what I haven’t found are a lot of  people who are on the journey up the ridge. Maybe we can share the climb? Together maybe we can figure out what works and why. Critiques, techniques, equipment and inspirations… that is the experience I want to share. Maybe there is a place for that here in the internet tubes.

So, if you don’t mind my grammatically challenged babbling, maybe you can check in once and a while and see what the latest thing that I have stumbled upon.

Until then I need to get out and paint. See you out there on the great plains!
