For the past few weeks, I haven't posted very often because I've spent every spare waking moment painting like a madwoman! I was trying to get a large enough body of work ready for The Chastain Arts Festival, which was my first festival. Here you can see one of my favorite new pieces called Sarabande. This abstract is 30 X 30 and was done with a palette knife, acrylics, oils, charcoal, and ink.
The festival itself went very well. I got so much positive feedback, and I sold five large paintings. I met some of the most interesting people, and, after the first day I began to notice some things about the ones that responded to my work. For example, if a person was wearing pink, he or she was bound to spend some time in my booth!
Over the next few weeks I will show you some of the other paintings I took to the festival. One of the pieces I sold was my little sandman in Bring Me A Dream, and, I have to admit, I already miss him.
Now that I have the festival behind me, I plan to work on some small pieces on board and to focus more on figurative painting. I have three compositions in my head that I am just itching to start.
