“You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.” Jack London
My art sale is into its second week on Etsy. Between now and early December I will be featuring three different paintings every week at 40–60% off the original price. Click on the images to visit my shop.
I will be posting the paintings here on Thursdays when they go on sale. I’m sorry if it’s going to look like spam — this is my attempt at spring cleaning the art cave which is full to bursting with art, art and more art. And I want to make even more art (of course I do) and so something has to go. Preferably several somethings.
I’m also just about to start work on a large painting commission which came through my Etsy shop. I DO like commissions : ) This one is going to be based on one of my mini abstracts. The challenge will be taking something 4 x 4 inches and making it 30 x 40 inches — sounds like fun to me!
Meanwhile, back to business. This week’s sale paintings are:
“Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is more people who have come alive.” Howard Thurman
These violets were originally posted last month as an ink and watercolour sketch here.
“The most joyous painting is not done for the art world, it is done for the inner world.” Michael Leunig
The quote is from Holy Fool, a wonderful book crammed full of Michael Leunig’s art ― not his cartoons but his playful, colourful, joyful paintings and drawings. Highly recommended.
