I have been so very busy finishing furniture orders, and oil paintings..just 4 more left! I posted a saying that I thought of on facebook the other day, and it goes like this…Employed: you have a job. Self emplyoyed: the job has you! That pretty much is how I have been feeling for the last year! I can’t wait to get back outside for some plein air work!!! There is nothing like that wide open landscape reference, and not to mention, the best lighting there is!
This year I am going to spend more time on my bike….and maybe just a little less time in front of a canvas. This does not mean I will not be painting every day!!I have been trying a bit of still life painting, and I am enjoying it…wow, never thought I would!!!
Hi,I am back….and now realizing that not “everyone” has facebook. I display my daily paintings on facebook, and sale many off of that. I am just finishing up Christmas jobs, which may be a little to wet to wrap!!! The gallery has been pretty steady. And I am fortunate to have a helping staff. Sue is in on Fridays, and Tina St. John has been in on Thursdays with her jewelry. And…thank you mom! (she has been feeling in when I need).
I started a painting yesterday at a beautiful creek on Kaweah River Dr. The weather was perfect, then the wind picked up and down went my painting…a couple of times. That’s just part of the plein air experience I guess! I just have to make sure I pick out all the little pieces of weeds and dirt!!!! It should be complete this afternoon, check back for a photo…
Today I painted off of a photo I took in Harmony of the old Dodge pickup out back of the glass shop. I really wish I was there painting it, but this will have to do. I love that place!6×12 $95…….not sure why it turned out huge!
I have been painting away…I just haven’t posted in awhile. Here are some more of my painting a day pics.been painting plein air alot lately, and loving it. I forced myself to drag my supplies, and my butt out and about. Wow!! The lighting, the freshness, the great outdoors!! I really don’t want it any other way. Now to invent for myself some easy canvas and oil carriers. I think I will just look online.
I have been working on my paintings a day, haven’t quite found time to keep them posted on facebook and my blog. Facebook seems to have alot more action for me , so untill I find more time that is where you will find the daily painting postings.
