A visual diary of my daily paintings. Most paintings are 6" x 6", some are 5' x 7". I paint whatever just pops into my mind that day. Or sometimes people make requests for commissions. It is very gratifying to start something small and finish it relatively quickly and build up a body of work that way. I hope you enjoy the paintings.
The size of the book is 7" x 7" and it is 40 pages.
Cathleen Rehfeld My visual diary... I love doing small daily oil paintings. They have an immediate freshness about them. Whatever you are thinking about that day sort of goes into them, almost like a visual diary. About the medium, oil paint - I like the creamy color intense luscious look of oil paint. I like making brushstrokes that bring out that quality in the paint. I try out new ideas, new colors, new subject matter from day to day, because of the small format. It is very freeing to be able to paint something and get it out relatively quickly. I have larger work available at the Columbia Center for the Arts in Hood River, Oregon.
