Well, I am here taking my turn sitting with the Art Studio at St. Augustine Beach. I thought I would take the opportunity to show you some pictures of the Studio and the artwork here. There is quite a variety of paintings, jewelry, pottery and stained glass as well as other pieces of art. I have some photos at the bottom.
As I sit here looking at the different paintings I realize that just because there are REALLY good artists here, it doesn't mean that those of us who aren't as accomplished are any less important. We all have a place in the art arena. Everyone has to start somewhere and as long as we keep painting, we keep improving! So don't ever think "I'm not as good so I should stop and just let the others paint." That is NOT the way to think, OK?
On another note, I have a couple of great nephews ages 5 and 9 who on Monday the 27th, received a small painting from me as a gift. They didn't have my phone # to thank me so they posted a picture of themselves holding the painting on Facebook with a "thank you". I was really tickled and it was SO cute to see their smiling young faces. They said they didn't know they had a relative who had a "website" before. Welcome to the modern age! HaHa.. Their photo is below as well. It is so cute! I will also add this photo to my portfolio of "satisfied customers".
I am also busy building up my inventory of small paintings for the Art Walk. I want to have a good supply on hand for the summer months. I am typically busier during that time and don't have as much time to paint so I want to get ahead of the game. Hopefully they will sell well and my investment will pay off. We must always think positive, remember. Also, it is good to remember that we may particularly enjoy one style of painting such as my "Scenes of St. Augustine" but they may not sell as fast as the "Caribbean" or seashore paintings because they are more complicated and thus more expensive. So we do more of the ones that sell and then we take time to paint what we love!
There are quite a few photos so Enjoy and Thanks for looking!
|The Art Studio|
The Table in the middle is holding my paintings I can show on my turn.
|This is the opposite side. The front entrance. I show this because where you see the two paintings to the right of the easel is the FEATURED ARTIST area. It is the first thing you see when you enter.|
|This is a view of the FEATURED ARTIST area. Notice how many paintings are displayed here. The grouping on the left wall are all 8 x 10 size. the largest is a 30 x 40. So you can see there is a lot of room.|
