Whew! I am exhausted! I have been painting almost non-stop for the last two weeks trying to get all the paintings done for the restaurant. Turns out that one wall currently has a large TV hanging. The owner said it is being removed and they want a LARGE painting to hang there. Well, just so happens that a friend gave me a very large canvas she no longer wanted. Actually, she gave me 3 large canvases and I used them all for this commission. Yea!! The biggest is 4ft by 5ft! the perfect size for that wall. But, that also meant that I had to paint on that large canvas! It didn't take nearly as long as I thought it would, but it sure did use a lot of paint! I guess I will start ordering my paints in large sizes now. LOL!! It costs too much otherwise! I'm not sure if I will be the only artist there or not. (They have several artists at their current location) I am to take all the paintings in next Tuesday morning. That is when I will find out I guess. Maybe they are having a contest? Just kidding! Hey, if they don't take all of them I will take the rest to the March Art Walk, to the Avonlea Mall or the Art Studio, etc, etc. BTW, I am taking the large painting that is currently at Avonlea to the restaurant as it fits the seascape and color theme I have going here. I am taking my "LAST SANCTUARY' painting up to replace it. It is a more traditional painting anyway, fits better in that setting.
I have been so busy that I haven't had time to come up with a lesson for you. Sorry. but I will have one for next week, OK? I think I need a painting break after this. At least for a few days. Haha..
I have pictures of all the paintings I have worked on for this commission posted below. You will see just how busy I have been. Thank goodness for massage, right? I get one tomorrow. Boy do I need it!! Anyway, enjoy and thanks for looking!
