Conquistador

"Conquistador", Oil and gold leaf on canvas, 40x30, SOLD

Well, no, as a matter of fact I have not finished a painting,
in fact I still feel a ways off on all three that I have up in
my studio. So I am posting an older painting.

I was thinking that I need a new title for my blog. It is
now called Treffinger Daily and it certainly is not been
daily as of late. Any ideas?

Thank you Jeane, you have been rocking lately!

I like your title, even if you don't post everyday. How do you change the name of your blog? The painting looks right on track.

I'm really looking forward to seeing all three. I think for me it's more difficult to finish a painting when I have more than one WIP, but I have to do somethig while I'm waiting for the paint to dry! It's funny; I changed my blog name today to "Creative Fits" b/c my sister and I no longer share Amusing Muses (and haven't in a long while), so the plural form is inaccurate. The new name came from what my mother calls what I do.

How about the name of your project"Art and Meaning"?

This painting is truly beautiful!! I feel like I'm looking at a chain of lakes and erupting volcanoes seen from above. Gorgeous colors.

Beautiful painting ~

Katherine, Perhaps you're being too hard on yourself.
Your work will naturally progress as your vision dictates, so enjoy the journey. When you get stuck, play in another medium or format until you can realign your vision or goal for your work with renewed motivation.
Your present blog title has a great ring to it; it sounds like a big city newspaper with all the latest within its pages. If you want to change it, that would be a personal creative statement, which no one else can choose.

Best Wishes...
When you can take a break, join me at my blog with a cup of something for a lighthearted post about blogging, arting, and life; it's entitled "Bedtime Stories".

Annell thanks for visiting, the painting is an old painting. I think it is very straight forward in changing the title. Change the blog address is another story.

Katherine said...

Kathy I thought of that, but the responses have slowed down on the project (maybe it is Summer) so it doesn't feel appropriate because I don't often talk about the meaning of art.

Katherine said...

Leslie thank you. The work I used to do had that feel often of being an aerial landscape.

Thanks DJ, I'm really not being hard on my self just was feelin a bit like a slave to my 'Daily' title. I like your take on the newspaper feel.
