My latest offering. And I love it.
I love the red & purple contrast, I love the teal to offset them both, and the white& yellow for some drama… I think it flows, it has movement and is fluid. It tool a really shor time to do and as usual I just stopped and it was finished. A few tiny tweaks and yeh…done. I feel like this is a simple yet interesting piece, there is nothing there, yet there is a story to me. For me a really nice mix of some of my ‘very detailed’ and completely plain. 🙂
Things are berserk here, this week has been the MOTHER of all weeks for me for art sales. But as always for me, it is never about the money, thats just a wonderful side effect, its about connection with people, its about being able to stir something inside of someone so they are ‘moved’ enough to want that piece of them/me that ‘I’ have created. I put ‘I’ in inverted commas because Im still not sure where it all comes from. This ‘thing’ that ‘I’ do, is it me? is it something else? (rhet)
SO, Im selling faster than I can produce right now, which is kinda fun. Suddenly Ive going from ‘working’ part time to full time, and I am SO HAPPY that I ‘work’ from home, this has been my blessing. I can control where, when, what and why…. PERFECT. This is how all the needs and wants in my life are met, and ART plays a massive role in that… I must be creating at least 4 days a week or I am not ‘Reina’.
I have 3 commissions to do before end of June, YAY! love it! its good to challenge myself with ‘boundaries’ once in a while.
I have about 5 paintings in progress right now, but cant load them up for some reason. …
ciao my friends. x
