After listening to Artists Helping Artists on Blog Talk Radio, I have learned so much about marketing. You can listen to all the series at. www.Artistshelpingartistsblog.blogspot.com. So much information. I decided my theme would be Painting Paths of Light as I am intrigued by paths and I love the light in paintings.I would like to get her widget (Leslie Saeta) on this blog as she is so great at helping artists. I also made up a new business card today with the following picture on it.
Both these paintings were accepted into the Mansfield Art Center's May Show. It will be interesting on Sunday, May 5 opening to see the show as usually most of the art is innovative and unusual and not representational. I loved doing both of these paintings as they have paths with light beyond to intrique you, just as our own paths are uncertain and we are always looking for the light.

Finally worked on the bell from standing out too much. This is one of my favorite paintings and the first one done after the Kenn Backhaus workshop. He challenged me to look at things differently.
This painting was done next. The photo had a new blue door and the building was of logs . I changed a lot of features and it was all very frustrating, so I see why Kenn said, "When you change things not there, you have trouble! So true.

Still catching up on these posts. My iPad is full and my good camera is full so will have to photo tomorrow after deleteing some photos and videos. Those will be photos of the workshop work done in the Kenn Backhaus workshop which was incredible. I learned so much and believe my work will improve immensely. This painting was done after the workshop and I believe it is my best work. I am going to tone down the bell but that is all. Can't wait to continue painting!
