Just for the fun of it, I decided to check my 2014 artsy activities and here's what's what::
2 Acrylic abstracts
4 Commissioned paintings
5 Art shows
10 Sold paintings
15 Plein air paintings
39 Studio paintings
I guess I'm painting faster than I thought and finally feel confident that I have the proverbial "body of work" in my studio. At the beginning, it would take me months to finish a painting! So much second-guessing, correcting values and colors, simply learning how to create a 3-D image on a 2-D surface. Have I turned a corner this past year? I feel much more confident with color mixing, composition, preliminary sketching and am making progress on values and edges. Thanks for taking the journey with me last year! Your encouraging comments, emails and responses mean so much to me!! I've already jumped on 2015 with several paintings coming down the chute...stay tuned!
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...
