Progress.....


Just a quickie blog today! I want to thank all of the people who have signed up to follow my blog...it makes it really easy to just click on the picture and see what has been going on with all of you. I appreciate it so very much.
I am working on the 24 x 36 today...and here is what I accomplished yesterday. I really haven't settled on a title yet.
I am going to have to make some time to pickup a painting this week in Arkansas... although the lady that is holding it for me is enjoying it immensely my gallery needs to have it for a potential sale. Hope the sale goes through.....times are always a little tough this time of the year.
On other notes the workshop with Jeff is coming together really well. I also need to get my painting done for the Different Strokes blog.
Lots of light,
Theresa

Love your dramatic shadow!

For a beginning, this is the end!
Those powerful sweeps of shadow colors so perfectly placed.
I'm eager to see the finish.

You should know how much I enjoy seeing the starting process.

That's an impressive size too.

Hi Theresa,
I remember this painting the first time out, loved it then, love it now.

Also I love the sold painting yesterday. Your blog is a constant
magnificent inspiration. Thank you.

Wow! Ok, I got a (very big) cup of coffee and went right ahead and read ALL of your entries since Christmas! I am amazed at your writing skills(fantastic, yes, you should write a book) and your new artworks (stunning, as always!) Reading your entries make me happy and inspired - I just wanted to tell you that....

During the holidays in the USA, I did show your artblog to my mother-in-law - she also lived in California for several years (Santa Monica) and she tells me stories of taking care of the rich and famous Hollywood celebrities at the local hospital where she worked at as a RN. (Her husband was a surgeon and they made one very heathy couple!) She was not lucky enough to have any hot dates with the rich and famous, like you did, though... hehe BTW, she thinks highly of your artwork and she agrees with me that you are beautiful...

Thank you so much for welcoming me back! It means a lot to me.

This piece looks great. I would never have thought of this design but it is going to be stunning. Beautiful color and sense of light at this stage.

I am loving this painting. The shadows are so light and colorful. You handled them masterfully.

Theresa Rankin said...

Thank you so much Carol!!! I am happy you like it!!

Theresa Rankin said...

Thank you Dear Bonnie...I was entranced by the shadows myself...right from the start...I am helping put together a workshop for a discounted price so I may be waylaid for awhile....darn.

Theresa Rankin said...

oh Barbara...thank you!!! It is a little different this time around. Longer format more accent on the shadows....I am hoping to get a little fire set under me with this workshop coming up ...been feeling the winter blues some.

Theresa Rankin said...

Wow!! Theresa! Thank you and all of those around you!! Sounds like some pretty interesting stuff in your life also! I really appreciate all the wonderful things you have said here....a real boost to the spirits! I am happy to see you back...and safe!

Theresa Rankin said...

On painting....thank you so much for such a lovely comment! I didn't think of the design...nature did....but I did see it. Hoping to get this one done before too much time passes...I have a few obligations to take care of....always a time eater. Thanks again...truly!

Theresa Rankin said...

Thank you Peggi!! I appreciate you comment! The shadows really grabbed me, too!

Theresa Rankin said...

Love the way this one draws me in. Lovely, loose, and beautiful light. Very nice.

Theresa Rankin said...

Thank you Dori, for your lovely comment and I am glad to hear it makes you feel that drawing you in. It is something I try to do with my pieces. I will have to stop work on it for a while to attend and help out at a workshop.....darn, but I will be learning..I will post a blog soon on what's going on at the workshop I will be at.

vickiandrandyrossart said...

Hey T! If I come for Legg, I could bring your painting...depending on where it is?

Theresa Rankin said...

My painting is at Carolyn Baileys house...I have the address here somewhere!! Hope you can make Jeff's workshop!
