I've signed up for Fine Arts America (FAA) and they provide a service that will print my artwork for you and even frame it. I'll have more information later. For now, it's to the studio!
Yes, this was a gift to my brother in law last Christmas. It's a "portrait" of his rooster, Little Bill. He is very proud of his rooster and chickens. You never know what to get some people, but he loved the pen and ink of his rooster. It was fun to draw and I loved the fact that he thought so much of it.
If you're interested in artwork for the holidays, just email me.
Here I am with the painting we did on day one of the two day workshop. The second day he did another demonstration, but I had to leave before I finished the painting.
I really enjoyed meeting the new artists here in the Nashville area.
The workshop with Frank Baggett was great. I met new artists and
learned a lot. The workshop was in Acrylic, not oils, so I was happy about that.
I was introduced to some new colors that I love working with. My new favorites
are Light Portrait Pink, bleached t. white.
A quick sketch of my husband. He likes to read a lot, so he's always there for me to sketch. This is a pen and ink with wash. He's a good sport about it.
The works below are all small works. 5" x 7" and smaller. The little landscapes are 1.75" x 4", they were a lot of fun to do.
The first two are acrylic paintings and the last one is a color pencil.
I went in today to work and get some supplies together for the workshop I'm going to on Sat. and S un. I haven't done oils in a while and it's a workshop in oils. Of course, I can't find my oils. I had four tubes that I use in Plein Air (limited palette). I do have the brushes and canvas. I'll have to pick some up Sat.
I also did a small sketch of my husband in ink and wash.
I'm going back in tomorrow to look for that paint.
Still painting, but the wrong canvas. The inside of the house is going so slow. I ran out of paint last night around 9. Now I have to travel 30 miles to get more, just more time away from my studio. It's been over a week since I've been there. I'm wishing I was finished with this mess.
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
