Yesterday, December 4th, I returned with my helper Theresa from from Columbus Ohio after participating in Winterfair. It was a huge event and there were so many wonderful artists, 497 they tell us. I was in awe of the diversity and felt honored that I was included. I always meet wonderful customers and artists. When the fellow artists find out that it is my first year of art fair participation they are very helpful and a wealth of knowledge. This was my last show for 2016 and it has always been a learning experience. I feel that I am wiser when I start 2017 and I will post on my website which shows I will be in next year. I have been applying so it is just around the corner. Theresa and I had a good time, good food, good hotel, just had to drive back in the first snow of the season with HUGE flakes. Now to plan for Christmas….decorating, wrapping, baking.
I wanted to share with you my latest painting that I finished and how it progressed. I started out putting in the different colors that I wanted to use. Cool for the background and warm for the flowers. It is on a large 36 X 36 canvas. Visually I wanted large flowers just like being close up looking in. I placed the flowers using some of the shapes and vacant areas.
I also decided I wanted more of the turquoise, teal and light blue colors and just some green. Some of the areas were painted over with the said colors.
The finished product, made it’s debut at Winterfair as my showcase piece. There were many smiling comments about “It’s a Bold and Colorful World”. Customers bought a few print and you can purchase one also on my Etsy shop. It would make a perfect Christmas gift. Thanks for stopping by.
