For the last about 15 years I have been enjoying the creative pastime of painting and drawing. Over the years I have sold many pieces and with the exception of a doctor’s office, where I helped install the work I seldom get to see it in it’s new environment.
The second photo is of a piece I sold at Interiors of Edmonds and the new owner was kind enough to share a photo of it hanging in her lovely home. All artists should be so lucky to see where their work finds a home.
Thank you for sharing.
Started this before the power went out the other day and the colors were just singing to me. When I finished I looked at the photo and saw a horse head. If you have a better name please share with me.
Not sure if you can tell by the photo, but I used Gold Leaf on this one too. Gold Leaf is interesting to use, as it sort of has a mind of it’s own and no matter how exacting you want to apply it, it moves and takes on a life of its own.
As I said earlier, I was having a great day in the studio till the power went out. I call this Green with Envy since I incorporated Gold Leaf once again in the piece.
Yesterday before we lost electricity in the storm, I was working on this painting, and thought it seemed a little dull, so had fun adding some Gold Leaf and liked the effect so much, I may do a series using that in my paintings.
We seem to always think that it would be better if, if we had done X instead of Y, that we took the wrong road and etc.
We have done what we have done in life and nothing can really change what we have done. So savor the moment, live each day to the fullest and enjoy what you are doing at any time.
That is my thought for the day.
Taking a class on collage got me thinking, how can you use your art to get a point across, have some fun with it and bring it to a slightly larger audience.
In the next few days, I will be taking paintings I have done in the past or drawings and will try to add interesting quotes to them.
Would love your ideas or suggestions if you so desire!
Having just returned from a two week road trip to meet my beautiful two year old grand daughter from Cambodia, traveling with my youngest son to visit my oldest son was rewarding in many ways.
Getting to know Claire a little was totally amazing! Traveling with my youngest son was a fun adventure. We talked a lot on the trip, but also found we could comfortably drive for many miles not needing conversation.
I have always loved the quiet times of the day. First thing in the morning, enjoying a cup of coffee and view from my kitchen and last moment before the sunset when the quiet of the day joins the beauty of the sky.
