Another late night critterscape. I wait until everyone is in bed to paint. My kids don’t mind me painting while they are home from school over Christmas vacation, but I’ve found that I can’t concentrate on painting while they are all going different directions. And then I feel frustrated. So my solution is to paint at night. All these critterscapes are 4×4″ so they don’t take too long. I’m not sure why but I enjoy painting rabbits, so I’ll probably put a little more time into painting a bigger one.
These little paintings are fun for me because when I sit down to paint one I have no idea where it will go. In the process of painting they bring themselves out. Perhaps that’s why I don’t like to paint the same thing twice. I like bringing things to life. People are a lot of fun to bring to life too. I need to get back on figure painting.
At my show someone wanted to buy my 36×48″ “Ballet 1″ painting and I had to tell them it wasn’t for sale. I love that one and it is meaningful to me for many reasons. So I’ll start another big figure painting that I can part with someday.
On a side note, I did sell my 36×48” Monterey Cypress tree painting, that was a nice boost.
Happy New Year! Thanks for following along!!
