To atone for my lack of posting, here's a bonus painting to show you. This will be the best photo I will ever get of this painting, because I have sent it away, donated to another artist who is having a fundraiser to help a friend of hers who is coping with cancer. The paintings she has donated will be auctioned thru a silent auction. If anyone reading this wants to make a direct monetary donation to that family, you can read about it on Kristen Dukat's blog, by clicking her name to the right of my blog. It will take you to her list of blogs, and the one she talks about her friend on is her painting blog called "A Time for Art." Her friend also has his own blog, where you can read about his and his family's ordeal. They seem like very sweet people going through a very tough time. His doctors don't expect him to live long, and the family really needs help.
I am starting to be interested in selling my paintings on Daily Paintworks. I seem to keep not feeling "quite ready." I have an idea that I should paint every day between now and August 18 and if I like what I'm doing, join Daily Paintworks on 8/18. Daily Paintworks charges you each month on the date you joined, and 18 is my lucky number. How's that for a business decision? (you don't have to paint daily to be on Daily Paintworks, I'm just thinking it would be a good exercise for me, and with the gouache, it would be doable by painting during EVERY lunch hour!)
