New Goals for 2014
I sold several original paintings in 2013 (as well as cards and prints) and would like to sell more. I thought I would start by offering some of my older work first and see how that goes. For the most part these are drawings and paintings that are not on my website (although the peppers one is there), but are still pretty and would look nice framed.
I did another experiment with ultramarine blue and burnt sienna to get a variety of grays (complementary colors). I used acrylic paints on watercolor paper. I don't like this scene enough to make a real painting, but I liked the way the colors worked to get the grays. I bought a small canvas (5" X 5") to try a painting of just the seagull and the rock, without so much background.
I have some other goals for my poetry and art. I am always learning new stuff and enjoy the challenges of being a perpetual student. Happy new year.
