Hi. It has been a few months since I posted anything here and I wanted to assure you that my social media silence is nothing to be concerned about. I am still here… I have been busy writing songs. My intention was to work on music and take a short break from painting for a month or so and, in the blink on an eye, it is now September and the first day of spring!
Yesterday I finally picked up a paintbrush again and this is what happened…
I have so many painting ideas waiting in folders that I’m in no danger of suffering from “artist’s block” any time soon… but then there are so many ideas, sometimes I’m at a loss to know which one to paint next ~ so maybe that is a kind of “artist’s block” after all. In an effort to reduce the backlog, I’ve started a series of small studies on paper ~ and I’ll be choosing the subjects more or less at random, so anything might happen : )
The first two to get picked from my ‘photos to paint next’ file are a tree dripping with autumn leaves (2017) and a daffodil positively radiating sunshine (2013)…
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:
