Victoria Beach Pastel 4" x 6"
available on auction at Daily Paintworks
The studio move proved to be more time consuming than anticipated, but it should be finished by the end of this weekend and I am in there more or less and just starting to set up a new painting. I am determined to put paint to canvas this weekend. Provided I can find my palette... That's the problem with moving, things change places, even if intentions are good.
Here are a couple of views of the new studio as it currently is laid out. A table will go down the middle of the room and a few things shifted around. Its just far to neat and tidy right now! Not a sign of creative juices flowing anywhere. That will all change soon.
Because I haven't had much painting or even sketching time this week, I was getting antsy so did this little drawing/painting in pastel of Victoria Beach, PEI. The view across the cove with canola flowering bright yellow was irresistable. Its available on auction this week through Daily Paintworks. I am putting my small paintings on DPW and so far am having positive results with it. Like every art sale site there are positive and negative aspects, but overall I'm getting more exposure and enjoy seeing the new art every day.
Speaking of art sales, there's a new Canadian site called Artbomb that's worth watching. If you subscribe, you receive one email daily with the work of one to three Canadian artists available to bid on. Bidding is from 6am - 11pm (Eastern time) for one day only. If your bid is successful, the art is shipped direct to you within two weeks. Only Canadian artists are featured and its good to see the talent from artists across this country being showcased.
I have a couple of other projects in the pipeline and will say more about them in the next couple of weeks. What with supplying galleries, selling paintings, marketing and admin, as well as my full time job, I really need cloning to get it all done!
