This summer, starting in April, was both profitable but also transitional. I feel blessed to have the freedom to explore my creativity.
April began with an awesome opportunity to paint several mural size paintings for a salon/spa in Westerly RI. Thanks to an interior designer I met, Sherry Pierce owner of Watch Hill Designs, I not only was part of that project but she sold existing paintings and commissioned me for several of her other clients as well. I look forward to continued work with her in the future.
I also have been a member of a group called BNI (Business Network International) Thanks to this group of professionals I have been referred or commissioned by the members to do portraits of family members or pets or paintings as gifts. Being a part of this group has also helped me narrow my focus and get closer to a business model I can grow. I have been blessed with versatility but it makes it hard to choose.
I also got to explore painting styles. Actually things really took a turn last October when I sold this abstract painting at the Scituate Art Festival. It was a painting I had done at the request of an acquaintance that gave me little direction and ended up not liking it. I decided to take it to my next outdoor show, hang it amongst my seascapes and see what happens. Much to my surprise and excitement, it sold! That turned my attention to doing more expressive abstracted work.
My love for nature and animals is narrowing down my subject matter. I have some ideas I’m excited to work on. One of those is to do daily small 6x6 paintings and ACEO or (Art Card Originals and Editions). These are 2.5x3.5 size artworks sold as originals or prints. They become collector’s items and can be a fun gift for the collector type. Stay tuned!
