I may have contracted "writers' block"...or is it "writers' blog block"?? Either way, my monthly blog fell by the wayside. I'm going to attribute it to my husband's retirement... whatever. The good news is I am still painting regularly and have work to show for it. If you are on my Instagram or Facebook pages, you may have seen what I've been doing; lots of small quick paintings with a limited palette. This is one of the painting exercises we are taught to do daily, if possible. Most are pretty basic "studies" and nothing to write home about. Keep up the habit and skills will improve, with good drawing, composition, values, and colors. I'm learning to free myself from expectations and finding a new flow, with the aim of expressing my unique voice amidst the myriad of painters out there.
BIG NEWS!! I have second website (in addition to wendyervin.com) specifically for the small paintings that I love to do. I'll be adding paintings to that gallery page often and the prices will not be over $150, with most being under $100. The PayPal link will be right there for easy purchasing, safe and secure. I'm going to be bold here and say that you need original art in your home. It doesn't have to be big or expensive, and I'm doing my part to make it affordable. Here's the link to my DailyPaintworks Gallery:
You don't need to join DailyPaintworks to make a purchase, but you must have a PayPal account. If you don't do PayPal, just contact me and we'll work it out. Here are a few of the paintings available:
As always, thank you for reading my blog! Your thoughts and words are so important to me!!
Hello! My name is Wendy and I am passionate about oil painting! Whether in the studio or out in Mother Nature, I get lost in the experience of capturing on canvas the moment and the feel of what I am painting. I pour my love and energy into every single piece of artwork and I hope it shows! This blog is a place where I can use words to talk about art, painting, life, faith, things that make me laugh, and things that inspire. I love every response, so don't be shy about leaving a comment...
