My house is spilling over with paintings, so I'm starting to mark down what I can. Please check out my Etsy shop (button above) to check it out. I'll be adding to the sale every few days or two until the store is well-stocked.
What's this on the easel: a larger painting?
Well, yeah. I'm trying to work a little larger, though I've almost completely run out of storage room. People like having paintings with a little umph to them, space-wise, right?
If you follow me on Facebook, you know that I visited Wrightsville Beach last October and took about 400 photos. Along the way I walked down... or rather, up to Johnnie Mercer's Pier, where I took a lot of pictures, bought a purse, and was generally blasted by sand. (A storm was brewing!)
But the pier itself gave me a lot of interesting graphic ideas. Here you see it in its first layer stage. Colors that are meant to show through but not be featured in the final painting are in place, as are the major values (darks, lights, etc). I'm still unsure where the people are going to be in this, but there will be people. Goodness, but I'm getting cocky!
It's been a while since I updated this page! I'll try something new. You've seen the picture of "Laughing Stream in Winter" before—now see it finished. I rather like it a lot.
