A huge thank you to everyone who came to support me by attending my backyard art show in September. It was a really special day for me & I enjoyed meeting some new people along with old friends whom I have not seen for far too long!
It was a beautiful, if a bit windy at times, day and I was truly blessed that we did not get even a spot of rain. This was just as well since I had all my paintings hung up on the railings of my deck. I enjoyed showing off my paintings and talking about my art journey with people in person. I also made quite a few sales, which was nice, and will keep me in art supplies for quite a while longer. It was also an interesting exercise for me, just to see all of my work together like that. I also displayed a few of my older pieces on the garden fences that I normally have hanging on my walls, so it was interesting to see my new work alongside the older pieces. One thing I did realize is that I want to start painting bigger again. After years of painting in watercolour, I started using acrylics so that I could do some large paintings for my own walls. Recently, however, I have done a lot of experimenting with new techniques, and have been doing small 10" x 10" or 12" x 12" pieces. So, perhaps now is the time to start working bigger again! I have ordered some larger panels, so we will see what happens next.
