I just sold the painting above and of all things I discovered that the person who wanted to buy it lives within an hour of me and spends every weekend at Bullards Bar reservoir! For those of you who are not aware of it, Bullards Bar reservoir is “a spit and a holler” from where I live. This morning I drove a whole 5 minutes to meet up with her. I feel so encouraged by this sale. Sounds silly to be so excited but I don’t have a clue how to promote myself. If it wasn’t for posting my paintings on Instagram I would not have sold this painting.
I absolutely love how this one came together. I would suppose that it is an abstract rather than a landscape. Perhaps a “mindscape”, yes I like that!
Another mindscape! I love watching how a painting evolves.
I painted this several months ago and I punched up the colors and values.
Inspired by my visits to Lassen Volcanic Park north of me.
Another painting that I worked over a bit. People on Instagram raved about it. So funny which ones are a hit. Sometimes I will adore a painting and it doesn’t seem to get the response that I would have hoped for.
Playing around with shapes and colors. Kind of freeing and fun!
It is such a joy to explore and see what happens especially while I paint with watercolor.
Well that’s all for now. Keep sane and safe in these trying times! Keep smiling and stay positive!
