Keep whales Out of Captivity

Just added a quote I found recently, can’t remember where right now. I put it at the top of my blog so I would see it everyday. I need to remember this. I tend to be somewhat chicken-hearted, but am trying to overcome this tendency.
More office buddies. Hard to believe this is a place of business, isn’t it?
This painting is probably about 2 weeks from being finished. I think the water will be my biggest challenge. I haven’t had any more dreams that would work for a painting recently, and I’m ready to move on to a new idea anyway.
I want to get together a body of work and start submitting work to galleries. I’ve put this off for way too many years. In order to get some inspiration, I’ve signed up for an online painting class. It runs for 6 weeks, the artist teaching the class is Flora Bowley. I found out about her from Teesha Moore. I have attended Teesha’s workshops (Artfest, Journalfest) in Port Townsend, WA for more than 10 years. She will be teaching in England with Flora Bowley and others at a workshop called Call of the Wild Soul.
Guess I’m going to have to go back and study word press some more! I can’t get this post to look like I want it to. Thinking of changing the template too.
This painting is from a dream I had about a year ago. It’s the first painting I’ve done in about 15 years. I have been wanting to get back to painting, have been distracted by bookmaking, iphone photography, hot glass, and many other mediums. I would prefer to work in oils, but don’t really have a place to do it right now.
