You do beautiful work! A friend of mine found your blog recently and directed me over here. As an artist myself, I'm just starting the whole process of hoping to sell some works. Hopefully I will get into oils in the future, but we will see! Goodness, I'm babbling, but anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I love the work I am seeing from you so far! All the best wishes of luck in your career!
Hi, Chelsea! Thank you so much for the note and the kind words! I am so glad that you like my painting. I like yours, too! Especially that bureau with the tree - it's fabulous. I would think you would have no trouble selling your art. I have lived in places where big trash day yields GREAT stuff - here in CT, not so much, but we are about to move to Virginia, so maybe there... Oils are great - I love them because they are so forgiving, and because I can pile up the paint, and that is such a draw for me... But it takes forever for the paint to dry, so... At any rate, it's good to make contact. I like your blog a lot!
This painting is so very plastic - in the original meaning of the word. Very alive!I've always liked best those paintings that are truly about manipulation of the entire surface, as opposed to "drawings" that are then colored in. My creative process? Different all the time - but I like my own work best when it seems to be spontaneous - images that I can see in my mind's eye as I work.
Thank you, Patrice! Yes, for me, too, the best paintings are the most spontaneous. The longer I think about them, the stiffer and more unhappy they get.
