After I delivered the work (the gallery owner loved it, thank God!) I came home and made a cup of tea. I sat down to drink the tea and basically planned on rewarding myself by being a couch potato for the rest of the day, but instead I was energized and inspired to pull out my oil paints.
I grabbed some old Masonite panels I had lying around and quickly painted 13 backgrounds in oil paint. Over the next few days I added some more details and here's three of the finished paintings.
|"Stormy Waves" - 5" x 7" oil on masonite - SOLD|
|"A Rocky Cove" - 5" x 5" oil on masonite - SOLD|
|"Tropical Waves" - 5" x 7" oil on masonite - $70|
I'm on a mission to add larger works to my collection and working with more designers and art consultants in the new year. I love making the small paintings and they do sell well, but I miss moving and dancing around while I paint the larger pieces. I know somewhere there's a happy medium for this prolific artist!
