Its winter in Portland, which means lots of gray, rainy days where there's no real light. Its hard to get motivated to leave the apartment, and get to the studio. So I'm a bit behind in posting here. Today there was blue skies and I loaded the dog in the car and drove to the coast to get inspired. I walked the beach at Gearhart and found the boatyard in Astoria and took lots of reference pictures. I'm in that creative place that is hard to document. It involves a lot of thinking. Work has started on another large painting, re-invigorated with salty air and a little bit of sunshine I plan to have more finished images to post soon.
Like many artists before me, i've created a blog to share experiments, small works, doodles and random thought. I've made a website that you should visit. michellemariedaly.com If you're interested in purchasing an original work of art or learning more about me or my work, or just want to stop and say hello, email firstname.lastname@example.org
