(c)2009 NL Matus

Breaking in my new Guerrella pochade box while I manned my booth at MACfest. I will be taking this out with me for most of the summer painting trips I plan to do. The small box size and format worked nicely for me in the booth, as I didn't want to contend with a larger setup and risk getting paint on my prints and notecards. I will be using the tripod instead of the small table when I go out on fieldtrips.

For this painting, I was working from a sketch from an earlier roadtrip. I wanted to be actively painting/demonstrating at my booth, and I was surprised that I got a lot of work done between customers.

Getting my feet wet. . .

I've decided I needed to set up a blog and use this as another tool for my painting efforts. I have been looking for a way to be more productive, and figure this will prompt me to  1) focus on smaller paintings and 'studies',  2) have a goal of finishing each one, and  3) and to post them on this blog.  I will aim for one each day or so, and see how that is working out.
