This 100 day challenge has been such a learning experience. Honestly there are days when I think, “What in the world am I going to paint?” I sit down at the drafting table and look at the dreaded white paper. Sometimes I flip through books for ideas.
My mother had a series of books called Great Museums of the World published by Newsweek in the 1960s. When she begged me to take some of her books I took these. I peruse one at a time for inspiration. The first one is the Tokyo Museum.
Now I am perusing the book on the Pinakothek in Munich. This is a museum I have actually been to. It was about 40 years ago and had become the old and new Pinakothek.
Ever notice how many of my paintings have women with tilted heads? Well, there are a lot of Madonnas in my art history books from college. That seemed to be the pose of the day in the Renaissance. So the secret has been revealed, I don’t tilt my head and look in the mirror for inspiration.
I am presently on day 156 so will catch you up on the last few week’s work. Prices are now $45 for matted and archival wrapped paintings. Framed work is $100. Shipping is not included.
So there you have another 25 days of watercolors, some days mixed media, but always with watercolor included. All paintings are $45, matted and sealed. $100. for framed art. I am happy to send a higher resolution photo to you if you would like to see a better image.
It is absolutely the right time to be thinking about commissions for gifts. Portraits of people, places or pets are all popular items. To see more you can click here.
Thank you to those of you who write and/or purchase artwork and to those who quietly enjoy.
Some of you may be following me on twitter or facebook so this is old news, however if you do not, I am participating in a 100 Day Project sponsored by The Great Discontent. 100 days of making, showing up and sharing on Instagram.
I chose 100 days of watercolor and began with a subject dear to my heart. Horses!
Time for something a little more traditional. Flowers.
I was really having fun with people so made a trip back to their world.
Maybe make them my special people, thin people.
and so it goes…
Because this a new medium for me I am offering all of these watercolors, in their various sizes for $15.00 plus shipping. Yes, $15.00 for an original painting, not a print. Many of them have been sold so if you see one you like message me and reserve it for a gift to yourself or someone else.
