Day 3

Day 3 From My Front Door

I tried painting my front door last year 
and I did such a terrible job on the perspective,
I almost gave up painting for good.

I didn't.
I took a month or so off,
and came back to it.

My theme is, "Scenes from my Front Door", 
so I figured I needed my front door.

Anyway, it was pouring down rain this morning,
so I ran out and got a photo and then came back in and painted in my kitchen.
I've never painted in my kitchen before.
I've got two studios and I'm painting in my kitchen.
But, I could see my front door from the kitchen window,
I had the photo from my iPad and my "other" painting for reference.
I loved the chair in my "other" painting, and the door wasn't too bad,
but everything else was awful.

But, I'm pretty happy with this one.
All of a sudden, some of the things I've struggled with are easier now.  
I guess that means I've had a break through.

Thank goodness. 


  1. Yay! A breaththrough! How wonderful! Lovely painting and it looks like a lovely, serene porch, where I would like to relax someday together...!

  2. Thanks Meredith. I hope you can relax here sometime soon.

  3. Great job on the front door and I love the chair. Would be nice to sit there with a big glass of ice tea. When breakthroughs come, it's always exciting.
