Hello out there! How goes things? Over here, I've still been lost in a world of painting and learning and painting some more. It's been a fun period of challenge and growth; at times frustrating when my skills don't align with my ideas, but overall, exhilarating to be experiencing the process of creative exploration and development.
One thing I am improving at is finishing and getting some listed, both on my etsy, pamg.etsy.com and some for auction on my pamgarrisonpaintstudio ig account. Here's the most recently auctioned piece:
Just like I have felt before, it feels bittersweet to be sending this one off to it's new home. I'm glad to have them go to good homes, and of course, I need the money to feed my painting supply funds, but I'll miss it too, I spend so much time with each one that it feels a little like a love affair. I wonder how many years I will have to paint, how many paintings I will have to sell, for the attachment to each piece to lesson. I'm betting that those that paint and sell in collections might feel that way about collections as a whole, but not so much each individual one. Or maybe when I understand my own painting process better, each one won't feel like I'll never be able to repeat something similar. Who knows, I'm just rambling on. As I paint and sell, these are just some of the thoughts that go through my head.
As you can see, flowers still have a very strong pull for me.
If you are joining me at the end of September at Donna Downey's studio, we'll be doing some painting over the 3 day class...be forewarned... you might find yourself falling down the same rabbit hole that I find myself in. At least it's a very fun and creative one! xo
