So I’m looking around my art studio (aka basement) and I see all this art. What I see is art that is ok, but not awesome. How can I make my art better? I decided to do some revamping. Revamping has been fun. I’m still working on additional pieces to change. Stay tuned.
Sometimes I paint something just to see if I can. Bird’s nests are hard and I don’t know why it is. My friend recently painted a bird’s nest and I had to catch myself from touching the canvas it looked that real.
I had taken some pictures a few years back of a robin’s nest that was constructed on the railing of our deck. It allowed me some great photos. I decided I would try again to paint a bird’s nest. This one is small. 4″x4″. I am pleased. It does get better to paint it more than once. That doesn’t mean it is easier.
Watertown, Wisconsin is going to have it’s first annual art and wine walk. The event is scheduled for September 14, from 5:30-8:30pm in downtown Watertown. Local businesses will have wine to taste and enjoy while looking at local art.
So my friend has talked me into sharing a booth at Pidder Padder Paws. Since this store is about pets seemed appropriate to paint animals. I have started paintings for this event. Small 6″x6″ paintings for $25. My thinking is that when purchased the paintings can fit easily in a purse. Nothing big to carry; only a wine glass.
