Here's a progress picture of the pair of red flower paintings I've been working on. After painting the second, I realized that if they were going to be hung together, I should have the first painting next the second so I could feel if the flow between the two. Because the first painting only had two flowers, I felt it looked a little barren. So, I used some red paper to position of few extra "flowers" back on the first painting. When I've done this in the past, I've often used my camera to take pictures of the different scenarios. It's just easier to decide when you have them side by side on the computer screen.
Also, today you can find one of my posts under Motivation on Empty Easel. If you haven't had a chance to read about my unexpected mentoring story, you can find it here. You, too, can submit any kind of article you think might interest or help other artists. I just seem to think of submitting to Empty Easel when I write motivational posts, my first article, but they have all kinds of categories.
Also, I'm very excited to attend this Saturday's Gala Artist's Reception for Randy Higbee's 6" Square Show in Costa Mesa, CA where two of my paintings will be exhibited. They have hung over 500 paintings, and it should be very impressive to see all of them. I am secretly hoping to run into Leslie Saeta, who co-hosts a radio program I love to listen to called, "Artists Helping Artists". I know she attended the last one, and it would be so fun to meet her in person.
Once again, I am linking up with Studio JRU and all of you lovely Sneak Peek Talents!
