MY "PSYCHEDELIC" PHASE
As I said in the last post, my "PHYCHEDELIC PALMS" are proving to be popular! So I am up to my neck painting more. I don't want to make them all alike so I am having to come up with different colors for the backgrounds and then different subjects in the paintings. I am having a lot of fun doing this and hope that all will be as popular as the original ones.
At the moment I have eight canvases painted with background colors and they are laying all over the place to thoroughly dry before I start my trees. The original set was shipped to Kansas, so I have no problem doing more that are similar to show here in St. Augustine. I can't wait to get them done. I will frame them in simple white frames and display them as they would hang in someone's home. I will put different prices on them as well, as individuals, and as a set of 6. I am also doing 2 canvases that are 12 x 24 gallery wrap. I am dividing each one into 3 background colors, and then the same subject in each color. One canvas is warm colors, the other cool. They will also be priced as individuals or as a set. There are so many things that can be done with this that my head is spinning! When I get them done I will post some photos, but for now all I have are solid color canvas, not much to look at. On top of that, I will be very busy for the next week on another project, so these will have to wait a few days to finish. But I am very excited, so they will be finished as soon as I am able, for sure!
On another note, we finished one painting in my art class and will start another one next Tuesday. We did a seascape which everyone loved, and now will do a cottage so the students can learn perspective. It is an important lesson for any artist to learn, so I will do a post on it very soon. We did not have a class on July 4th so we only have two more classes in this session. I wanted to do more paintings but it now looks like we will only be able to finish the cottage. I will demonstrate the flowers if we have time though. It is a good lesson in impressionism and staying loose. And they are very pretty! Not a still life, it is an impressionistic garden. I will post photos of all three for you to see below.
