This morning as I stepped out in the dark on our side deck to hand grind my morning coffee beans, fine snow brushed my cheeks. It smelt of winter and reminded me of damp wool and hot chocolate.
COASTAL WINTER STORM (12 X 12 inch oil on canvas) is like this.
It is like today on the southern Gulf Islands.
Yesterday’s post “Begin a painting with no punctuation” is the only process image I captured. But here is a detail of the final image so you can better see the loose layering of paint.
The painting still must have its edges painted so is not quite ready for the online gallery ArtsyHome where I am the feature artist this week. (feature has the capacity to leave a comment too – which would be nice if you feel so inclined) But soon. However, you can lay claim to it now if you want. Just send me a direct message and we can work out the details. The price is $550.00 U.S. including shipping.
When I become a really famous artist I will have an assistant who will paint the edges of my paintings, add the picture wire, put them in the inventory program and then package them up to send to buyers. I shall paint and only take a break to make soup and go for long walks with my camera.
I am also a featured member in the Beautiful BC Art redbubble group this week. You may want to drop in and see all the stunning work that is on display by other photographers, including an image by a fellow Mayne Island photographer Toby Snelgrove.
A happy customer posted the arrival of my painting STORM COMING and talks about the dilemma of where to hang the painting so everyone in the family can enjoy it.
So it seems it is a good week to be an artist and I am ever-so-grateful for you company, support and encouragement. Thank you!
SPROUT: What will you hire an assistant to help you with when you become famous?
