I tried to paint with those all in one mini things that Cottman sells, with a number 1 brush or whatever. I felt a magnifying glass should be included. (I'm older and I don't see so well, so excuse me!)
Tooo Teeny Weeny, Then I tried the French Easel. The weight, the bulkiness, the size
. What a nightmare!!! Especially because I am Teeny Weeny.
Well, for my body build, I found one that's just right!…

I painted these with the New Mexico Plein Aire artist at the ghost ranch. Both of these are 18 X 24 s.
My last outing with that group was the Santa Fe ski basin. Wow! What a day that was. I've been painting
here in NM for close to 45 years. Emmett Johns

I just posted some of the paintings I did while on a painting trip to Taos, NM. The trip was organized by PAAC (Plein Air Artists Colorado) and was a perfect Mother's Day weekend getaway! My kudos to PAAC for the wonderful job they did in organizing this and providing detailed information on where to stay, eat, and, of course, great painting locations!

Not sure if any of you subscribed to Plein Air Magazine. It was awesome and although I do enjoy its replacement, Fine Art Connoiseur, I miss the artist focus of Plein Air. Here is a link with a survey you can take to help bring it back! Thanks!

Let me tell you about a Delightful little town that I love to paint in. It's called Loma Linda. You may have heard about this town in the news. Loma Linda University is one of the finest medical facilities in the country. That's how I got here, so long ago. But I digress.
The people of Loma Linda are into health. This is due to their religion, Adventist. So many wonderful restaurants with GREAT vegetarian food, the Farmers Market on… Continue

Is art the greatest form of communication on earth, or what?

After some great days away it's always hard to get going
in your own area again, ...
So I thought why not visit my friend and colleague Eric and paint
somewhat over there. Eric has moved his ship to Loowaard a nice
little pond beside the Rhine (more or less)
There was an other ship they where restoration on shore that gave a

Hi - my name is Terry and welcome to my Blog. I thought I would tell you a little bit about me and my art.
First of all, I am self-developed and didn't learn how to draw until a few years ago. I am a Master Technician in airbrush. Which basically means I can copy anything. I love airbrushing, but it is extremely difficult with such a precision tool to create expressive artwork.
So, about two years, I decided to learn how to oil paint. From day one, I hated it. It was messy… Continue

So, I'm heading off to the IAPS (International Association of Pastel Societies) convention this morning. It's in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and I'll be giving a couple of demonstrations Friday and Saturday. I'll be home again June 9. Happy trails!

I wanted to tell everyone about another free website that I have been on for about two years now. The site is: www.fineartamerica.com and as I said it is FREE!
About 3 months ago I signed up for their "Print-On-Demand" service. For $30 per year, you can post your artwork for sale as high quality giclee prints. I have over 300 pieces posted and I went through and re-photoed and re-scanned everything so I would have all of them at a high resolution to insure that the print quality was… Continue

Each time I bike along this tree from a far distance
and each time I almost can hear him call,
"Paint me, paint me!"
So today we met each other and you can see he could tell a long story,
if he could, ... Glad we met.

Thanks to Don, I'm starting a page on this site. I'm going to put a little information on this site in hopes of connecting to others who enjoy the pleasures of standing in a field pushing some paint around.

I hope my picture came out on this blog or non of this will make sense. It is a picture of my well loved paintbox, an Open BoxM. It has been with me all over from the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, the Grand Canyon, Crystal Cove California and the deserts of Arizona. Yes, it looks like an abstract painting but every 4 months or so I sand it down to clean it up just a bit. I have noticed that for the most part artists are one or the other. Neat, tidy,… Continue

Today I changed the name of my blog. My blog just had it's third anniversary on Wed. May 13th. It began as The Painting a Day Project to feature my small daily paintings. I had another blog, Art&Life, for my plein air paintings. After 2 1/2 years it got too crazy to maintain both, plus I didn't know where to show my studio landscapes. So I left a message re-directing folks from Art & Life to The Painting a Day Project and combined everything there.
However, over the years my… Continue

Having a blog has been very helpful and fun for me. I use it to communicate with my students and collectors, often showing my latest finished paintings. Often I give out homework assignments or send out an invitation to an upcoming show. Blogs are so simple to use and much less complicated than a website- although I have that also. I have been using blogspot.com and found it very easy to update. My art blog is: carrillopainting.blogspot.com
