Many artists have joined the movement of “daily painting”, which involves a commitment on the part of the artist to paint on a frequent (maybe not quite “daily”!) basis, and complete a small painting in one sitting. As you can probably tell from my artwork, I tend to paint in a fairly detailed, highly rendered style. As a result, those paintings take much longer to complete. In order to stretch myself to paint more quickly and focus on the key elements of a painting (rather than trying to paint every last detail), I am committing to joining the daily painting movement. I plan on having fun with these paintings, and experiment with a looser style and a variety of subject matter – anything goes! Generally these paintings will be roughly 6″ x 6″, in order to allow for completion in one session.
I plan to offer these smaller paintings for sale at a reduced cost, and each painting will be sold to the first person to email me offering to buy the painting. If any painting does not sell within a reasonable timeframe, it will be removed from my website so check back often! If you sign up for my newsletter (see “NEWSLETTER” option on the menu), I will notify you when a new painting is posted. I will post new paintings whenever I can, allowing for occasional travel plans and our new house construction project!
I’d love to hear from you with ideas for subject matter for these paintings, and to let me know if this is something of interest.
Any and all ideas and suggestions are welcome!
