A Painting Update

it’s been awhile since I last posted some of my artwork

Back in September I was finally able to display two of my paintings for a show that was suppose to take place last January. I had originally made three paintings for the show but one sold earlier in the year. I’m pleased to say that the two that were hung in the gallery at WAAC also sold.

These were all 16″ x 16″ x 1 1/2″.

I’ve just finished three more pieces for another show later this month. The show is called Small Gems and no piece can me more than 48″ all around. These three are all 12″ x 12″ x 1 1/2″.

Getting Ready for an Art Show

…small gems

Last year I joined the Women’s Art Association of Canada. Actually I won a membership for a year and this year I extended the membership for another year. I was really hoping that if I belonged to a group like this I would be inspired to paint more. Unfortunately circumstances beyond my control made finding time to paint difficult.

Despite these time constraints I still managed to find some time to paint ‘small’. Often my inspiration came from on-line classes, especially Carla Sonheim’s classes. Every year at WAAC (Women’s Art Association of Canada) a special show just before Christmas is featured in the large gallery called ‘Small Gems’. Members are encouraged to submit small pieces, no larger than 48″ around the perimeter, framed. Also, the pieces can be sold for no more than $200.00.

This year I managed to complete four small pieces. Two I made earlier in the year and the last two I started and finished last week. You may have already seen the first two but they are now framed.

The next two were inspired by Carla Sonheim’s Flower Crazy 2 class. I love working with my Pilot Pens over a watercolour background.fullsizeoutput-7be4
