Continuing my journey of relaxing and painting portraits and flowers.
I have been cleaning up my portfolios full of art from other people.
Artists I met online, traded with or bought from comicons and art fairs. I still love all the art and the different styles but I'm running out of space.
But I can't say no to art and books, though. They make my home my favorite place and I keep getting inspired and creating surrounded by my favorite art and authors.
I realized that the size of the prints that I've been buying lately have been smaller. This way I can store them and look at them as an art book instead of having a hard time deciding which to put on the wall.
More and more my favorite size for a print lately has been 8x10. Do you agree? Do you have enough space and do you still get poster size print and art?
Working of this painting now. I'm still not sure what type of flowers these will be. Maybe begonias? or maybe dahlias?
I'm just focused on the shapes and light and shadow for now before I add more details. I based this one on the Pre-Raphaelite painting by Watts of the girl smelling a flower.
When I am not painting these I am writing my next novel, sharing my love for my other books to people who haven't met them. If have the ability to help, tell someone outside or inside social media about my art and books.
It will mean the world to me.
