Here was my submission, “Cloud Castles” Watercolor collage, 9.5×7.5 in mat to 12×10″. $65:
Yes, it is possible to sell art during the pandemic. A major collector saw one of my ‘Newer Work’ posts and decided to treat herself. I’m not only blessed with the sale, but also the pic of the painting in its new Forever Home. Although she says she might move things around.
The painting is called “Sky Comes Down”.
It contains the following haiku: Sky comes down to us, At every angle the rain that might wash us clean.
Thought I’d fill part of the void by putting a few more things up on my Etsy store. The Folded Flamingo was created for a lesson for a class I was teaching a few years ago, a repeat of one of my earlier watercolors.
Last week I went to the monthly meeting of the La Mirada Art Club to talk about my work and demonstrate part of my process for them. I was fortunate that one of the members agreed to take some pics of me working while I was assembling the refractured watercolor.
Here’s the empty room, just when I’d set up.
After having watched me brutally hack up my painting, I start by assembling the horizon.
I usually am looking at the sky the ‘right way up’…..
…and I usually start with the top of the sky….
Now it’ starting to come together.
Sliding some deeper blue under other pieces.
Well folks, that’s all we have time for tonight.
This is the layout that I created at the demo, but I just picked up the pieces without marking their places.
