I'm on a Roll!
In July I had decided to try to do at least two of the one painting a day pieces twice a week. I bought canvas panel and thought I was ready for it. I only managed to paint two small ones that month, and a few days ago I completed the third one. But today I was truly inspired by the other artist who are doing this day in day out. USA Today published an article about this new phenomena of artists using blogs to get their work to the masses. Artists Take Paintings to Masses was what triggered this new painting today. I'm don't think I can pull this off everyday, but I will try to get done as many as I can during the week. This little painting of the day is about one of my oil treasures. Yes, it is a tube of genuine Vermilion hand ground in washed linseed oil. Genuine Vermilion along with Genuine Naples Yellow are hard colors to come by, but some oil paint companies are catching on to the demand for the real stuff.
