Finally I got an hour to do a little painting. I've started a horse picture that my cousin Vicki took. So far I've blocked in the horses in white to get them anchored in place while I work on the background.

this one is finished and I did it out of class, on my own!!! It is signed but I still need to get it scanned.
Not finished yet but very close. I had to bring it home from class while we are on a break for a month. Not much left to do.
This one is too not finished and I'm not sure I like what I've done. The window in the back I think I will redo, just not what I like at all.

Don't worry, I have been painting but just not finishing anything right now. I've got these three started at home and hopefully will have them finished for a show at Ziegler's in October called Fresh Paint. Hopefully I will have some ready for Art on the Square at Utica Square in October too. Think I need to get busy and finish these don't you think. The first one is just veggies. I took the picture and loved the darkness of it so am trying to paint it here. The second one is just a room, or corner of a room at a friends cabin. I'm changing it up a bit with some color but I like it. The last one is well, me at 18. I was just playing around one Saturday night late while sipping a bit of wine but I think it can be good if I just pick it up again.

The ART show is over and done. Unfortunately I did not get a ribbon, or even an honorable mention but that is just fine. It was a good experience. Also, it was a No Sale for me too. Gotta get some of this stuff sold as it is going to start piling up if I don't. I know I'm learning still but my goal is to sell my art. I don't want to get into the print selling part of it, I want to sell originals. I kind of think it cheapens your art to sell prints, for me. This is just a short note because I felt it was too long since I posted. I'm still painting in class and at home and hope to have some more stuff posted here soon. The class will be on a break in a couple of weeks and sometimes I get a lot done on my own at home when it does, at least I hope that happens again like the Christmas break. Till we meet again.
