I usually take vacation the week between Christmas and New Years, but I always miss out on all the fun leading up to Christmas. So this year I took the week before Christmas off! Been havin' lot's of fun with my wife and girls.
Also, visited a few local galleries here in Oregon City. Even found out about a local organization called the Three Rivers Guild which I'm going have to check out on their next meeting. Looks like a great way to meet some other artists in this area.
So here's a few things I did today. Continued work on an existing piece and sketched out a quick sketch for a new 6"x8" piece. I'm going to try and knock out some smaller paintings and work on painting a little looser and simplify, simplify, simplify!
