I've been keeping myself together, being a sort of "art job" detective - painting when I can, and painting for others to keep the critters and me fed. Whew! It's tough out there!! Did a faux job, a few pieces of furniture, some decorative painting and a floor (Gawd, I hate painting floors!) - and bid on several things that didn't materialize. Folks are playing it very close and often backing out after due consideration - even with my offering to cut prices. In June I noticed a slight increase in calls and contacts - and I sold another painting - which helped a lot. Onward and keep painting!!
Here's the first version, with four trees standing, and slightly differing coloration. But the old compositional adage holds: odd numbers work best - at least for me.
As y'all know, I've not been online much this past month. Today I was checking out what came up when Googling my website (www.patricelynneyoung.com), and I saw that The Cloud Appreciation Society had posted one of my paintings, "Early Warning." Wow, how cool is that?!!
If you like "atmospheric landscapes" they have many posted there featuring artists who love the complexities of clouds and weather.
I've another painting to post tomorrow - forgot to photograph it before delivering it for a show. I've a turtle adventure to post as well on the rabbit hole... so off to bed for now...
