Following some advice, I’ve embarked on a study of lighthouses, because I love them so much as visual objects in interesting settings.
The lighthouse source image I found on Unsplash. Thanks to James Peacock @jimmyp9751 for making this photo available freely on Unsplash 🎁
Please see my notion project page for more information on this study.

This originally came from a photo by a class member. She took the photo from a vantage point over the flowers and vase. I decided to reimagine the view from straight on at the top of the vase.

Jokingly naming the painting “Ellie Font” for no typographical reason, just the way my brain works.
Again, the blog is over on Notion.so:
We started a new painting class project in February. It’s a picture our teacher took while touring around near La Crescent / La Cross.

Doing things a little differently this time. Instead of writing my blog post here, I wrote it using Notion.so.
For the new year, I am trying to do some art making every day. Today I wanted to work on some watercolours, but my hands were so cold, I couldn’t hold a brush very effectively.
Instead, I went to the iPad, and was able to do stuff under the covers.
