I spent most of the day in front of my palette and easel, and created a number of oil paintings.
I started doing a color chart, in order to have a sense of how the different colors on my palette blended together.
Before I finished, but after I ran out of room on the palette, I switched to working on a couple of paintings I had tried before.
I’m not unhappy with the results, but do need to learn to tone down my colors. I mean, I like bright colors, but these aren’t really what I have in mind.
After I finished those two paintings, I decided to use the dregs on my palette on whatever crossed my mind.
I had a canvas sheet that I had previously (apparently!) cleaned a brush on; it was completely covered in a light plum color!
I started with a palm tree over that and ended up with something I rather like: it’s called Java.
I used up the dregs of the dregs on some figure studies. Those were fun; I’ll do more!

Very nice, Mike. Your studio seems relaxing and I imagine above all with a “Do Not Disturb, Artist at Work” atmosphere . I have no talent for painting except for loving Art.
So, very much admiration and best wishes for your work. 🎨
