Yesterday was a busy day for me. I made orange marmalade, put the finishing touches on my latest painting, and started a new canvas. Below is View from the Hill, oil on canvas, 16″ x 20″. A former art teacher used to say I painted like I was on acid.
I wish everyone good health, good cheer, and better circumstances in your endeavors. I might as well wish myself the same things. A few thoughts about my art came to mind:
Where is my art going? Is it going anywhere? Does it matter? Of course, it does to any artist. Will I carry on painting? Of course, I will. I just hope that my website will help my art gain exposure and that it will eventually translate into sales so that I can paint some more!
Over the past three weeks, I have worked on a 30 x 40 canvas which I started a year ago. It is progressing well, thank you very much. In addition, I put the finishing touches on a portrait which had been sitting around for a few years in my studio. Lastly, I started two more canvasses which I hope to finish before spring comes next year. I’m on a roll!
