Hi! I hope everyone's 2013 has started out better than mine! No really, painting is going well but work is stressfull and in double measure as I have had to refrain from dancing this year due to pain in my back and left hip. Bummer I know & pun intended!
I also wanted to keep you all up to date on the events at the Daily Painters site since I have passed the two month marker, and there are none. I have been painting religiously and posting anywhere from 3-5 pieces a week (not all the 6 x 6's since I have so much art that I wanted to have a little bit in the gallery so people could get a feel for my style so I added older sold works). Any way, nothing has sold (via the site - I sold a piece myself though). The most popular piece is pictured here. Over 50 views but no bites. About 500 hits to my blog year to date, of which I am not sure which were directed from the daily painters and which were from the S&CO. If I had to guess I'd say 30 / 70 dpw/s&co (so more directed to it by me & my work circle). I'm sure I signed up at just about the worst time of year (November with everyone shopping for the holidays) so am confident things will improve eventually......
I continue to produce about 4 paintings a week. I am on a roll with my photos of boo boo kitty from Texas & can't thank Sally enough for spotting her on the bird bath. I got some amazing photos and I like some of the pieces I am turning out too - not all 6 x 6's. I do find that size annoying after a while and I want to paint a bit bigger. Then I will go back to it for the discipline in seeing and I like change. I will post a boo boo kitty painting as soon as I take a few photos of them and edit.
Mmwa! to you all & have the best Saturday ever! I wish everyone would sign on. We only got about the 1/2 class participating. Perhaps it's intimidating and we'll have to go over that next year in class.
