Decisions... decisions...

Oh, how I want to paint something new...  but I can't because I have to get the big one I'm working on finished in time for Art Walk.  Summer's are not very productive for me... I'm not complaining because it's my time to be laid back.  I love summer and after working for the last few years, I now want to enjoy every  minute of the wonderful Okanagan weather.  I live in a resort condo and I can hear children playing a game of street hockey, birds singing and the gurgle of my water fountain on the deck.  The outdoors is calling but I'm a studio painter through and through and I must complete my goals.  Sigh...

I'm smiling to myself.  What a wonderful dilemma.  After many years of serious life altering choices and decisions that needed my attention, I now can sit back and blog about my choice to paint or go outside and read a book... life is good.

6'x4' oil on 24 squares of stretched canvas

My VIP mention for today is Hilda Muxo Klinger.  Even though Hilda has some wonderful pastel paintings, I'm drawn to her lovely oil paintings the most... go have a look.


  1. I'm so happy you have these choices Bonnie. Whatever you paint will be from an inspired heart. I will second your VIP mention - Hilda's oil paintings are beautiful.

  2. Bonnie, this is looking amazing!! Absolutely stunning and I thought it was a photograph at first (the white canvases proved otherwise LOL). I am so happy for you to have those choices you mentioned. I always enjoy my worry free days (when all is right with the world, though usually something throws it off kilter for me).

  3. Wow Bonnie - have to admit I didn't read the smaller print under the photo. I thought I was looking at your deck with the blank canvas waiting! It looks so real I didn't realize this is the painting - great job. And I call myself an artist - eyes failed me ;)

  4. It's coming along beautifully, Bonnie.

  5. This is amazing, Bonnie. I must have looked at it countless times to see how you did it! very unique...of course, I'm wondering how you keep it together!! I hope we can see this one finished.!

  6. The idea is great and so is the resulting painting. Thanks for sharing.

    I have changed my blog to http://www.pencilsandbrushes.blogspot.com/ . My old blog address vd-art.blogspot.com is being used by someone else and it is appearing as VINAYAK DESHMUKH ART in everyone's bloglist which is not correct. Please make the necessary changes.
