Surrounded


Surrounded
Oil on ultra fine canvas, mounted on masonite and framed, 8.75x11" $150 Email me

I'm really enjoying my painting routine. I get up early and start to paint, and finish around lunchtime. Then we have our main meal and I am free to fool around the rest of the day. This ends up meaning that I am reading novels. I love to read but could never get my time organized so that there was time for it, without feeling like I ought to be doing something more important.

When I look at what the other daily painters are doing, I see a variety of small works, like 3x4" or 6x6". I have painted canvases that small, but I prefer the larger sizes, which I think make for a better finished presentation.

    You're very talented and accomplished in all that you do, however you should consider toning down your palette to see what happens. Study G. Morandi.

  4. Personally, I like the intense color of the plums on the softer background. But that's just me :)

    I've gotten into the same routine. Do my "work" in the morning, eat our main meal early and then I have the rest of the day to "play". It took me a while not to feel guilty that I wasn't "working" at something ALL the time. Hey, what's retirement for if not to enjoy yourself...right?? :)
