"Through the Door", the view I see from the club room at Fox Valley Saddle Association when I set up my portrait exhibit

I churned out this little (7″ x 10″) watercolor today, perhaps inspired by a friend’s photo of her kitchen window posted on Facebook–a dark interior looking out on a bright exterior. I took the photo for this painting last year and it’s been sitting around ever since, reminding me how I really liked this view, but not motivating me enough to actually paint it. I was at Fox Valley a couple of weeks ago, and took a set of similar photos, but this time with the silhouette of a horse and rider in the doorway waiting to be called in for their competition round. That got me interested again, and then when I saw the kitchen window photo I knew I had to get it together and put it on watercolor paper.

    I am impressed with your dedication and I enjoy your honest writing style. I believe we both share this idea of blogging to somewhat “map” out our journey through being an artist. I enjoyed reading your previous entries too. Keep up the great work!
