Hello my lovelies, I hope everyone has been doing well and has been creating like a mad artist! Over on this end, at Clare Plantation, I have had to do some reevaluating. I have realized after an art show that I previously entered that I need some work! I am struggling with composition and I think where I have been putting most of my time in, it has limited my growth as an artist.
Check out this painting by a lady who won best in show at the Art Show I attended. It is an oil painting that I literally couldn't keep my eyes off of the moment I walked into the gallery. So I based what I need to learn on how I reacted to this painting. It was a show stopper, it one best in show by it's composition and it's alluring color choices and size. I need to work on these areas the most.
So yes, this is a short post but I wanted to update you on where I stand. Clare Plantation is under a little bit of reconstruction. I need to figure out where I need the most work. I have been out of the learning phase for a while and have thought myself a professional artist. I'M NOT! I've got a lot of learning to do! I need to touch up on some things and I may be absent for just a little while.
(Anything look familiar?)
While I am a little absent, I will be preparing some workshops that will be available on my Etsy shop soon and I will make a quick Promo video to let you know what it is about. I am taking this time to make my work better and to develop as an artist. I also want to make content that is better for you lovely viewers! You all have been so supportive and there is nothing I can really do but THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!
(The Picnic one is mine)
I'll be back as soon as I can but until then, happy creating and if that creating means taking some time to re-learn something or develop your craft more, you and I are in the same boat!
Talk to you soon!
Happy Creating and May You Always Bless God!
