Lynne’s Painting at Mid-Stage

Today’s Before and After is contributed by Lynne Medsker. Lynne has been a friend of this blog for a long time, and I’m delighted she has decided to show us a recent blog post about a piece that she reworked. Lynne has outlined the process in complete detail, beginning with her rescue of a painting that had languished in its state of being “stuck” and through several sessions of reworking (this sounds so very familiar.)

I love how she shows every step of the process, even almost starting over with white, and then back to color again.

Thanks, Lynne. Your words are so true:  Life definitely is a lot like art.

On the Agenda

Unfortunately, on this beautiful spring day I get to go through the rest of my business records for our taxes. Maybe I’ll do that out on the screened porch. Yeah. Sounds like a plan! I might finish early enough to reward myself with a little bit of work in the studio.

I hope your week is a creative one. Above all, have fun!

    It’s such an interesting post Lynne has, about how she reworked her old painting – thank you for featuring it so that I could find her blog and work! I like the fact that when she flipped it she was able to make a completely different painting. ~Sara

    Great post as always Martha. Lynne’s process was a stunning journey into an artist’s creative adventure. I wish you an uneventful passage from taxes to studio today!
