Pastel on Suede Mat Board 5 x 7 $75
I have made a decision. Since this is my 3rd new painting started and completed in a day and the other two are lily pond paintings, I realized something is happening here and I like it.....So-o-o-o(pause and gulp) lily ponds it is. I am now committed to this theme until I've completed 25, you thought I was going to say 100 didn't you? Nope it's 25 buttttttttttt at the end of 25 my contract with myself is 1. renewable, 2. null and void or 3. You out there tell me what you think. Do I go on, do I change the subject matter or what. Now don't expect a newly created work each day, day after day. Instead for now I will paint a new lily pond piece when I can but you can expect to see another painting from my inventory or a just completed painting from a work in progress daily.
Today you see two works. Gossamer Light done today and Dancing Lights featured in my very first blog. Dancing Light is an example of one of my lily pond paintings in large format. I'm very proud of it. It won 4th place in The Pastel Society Society of The West Coast's national exhibition and it put me into signature member status. Question...What makes a successful painting? Is it because it sold ? Does it have to win an award?
