Landscape progress

Finally starting to look like a painting! I started this Plein Air and have wrestled with it ever since. Some paintings or drawings come more easily than others.

I just looked to see when I started this painting, omg, where did the time go. I went in February to a paint out with the Palm Beach Plein Air group. Maybe I will finish it this month!
 

Into the Light

Out of the chaos, I cling to hope and a brighter future. Presently I project to invest my time and energy in producing new artwork and living my life from a clear center of defined purpose. This last year has been a bleeping rollercoaster.  I used to like rollercoasters, but not the emotional/financial kind that I have been on since my mother died.

I am an artist. I enjoy doing portraits, pets or people. I like working with old photos.  I plan on doing more nostalgic art. I enjoy working in different media.  I am available for commissioned artwork. Please contact me at eeschwege@gmail.com if you have a sincere interest in having a custom artwork done for you.
