I am still riding high from selling three paintings this weekend. The only downside, is now I have three (ok, actually two, since one was from last year) less paintings to sell at our art show and sale later this month! Time to get cracking!
This is one of the paintings I sold in the first hour, but I kept it in the show until the end. I had so many compliments on this one, that I think I’ll try to make another that’s similar. I hope that my work is always evolving and getting better, but sometimes I think it would be fun to keep doing the same idea for a while, rather than forcing myself to do different things (mostly because I end up staring at the blank canvas with a dumb look on my face, trying to think of that great new idea). I just can’t paint that way – i.e. think first, paint after. I prefer to just jump right in, which is why a little self-plagiarism may be required. I’ll change the colours and the message, of course, but I do like the effect of the colours fading into white with the dots on top.
