The mist is back today and the rain is rolling across the sea - beautiful and mesmerising, but a totally different scene when compared to the last few days.
I've been unpacking and re-wrapping all the landscapes and abstracts ready for Lynne's Art Shed - have reached the third box, still a load to go. It's a slow business as I check and load the images onto all the online galleries/shops (five in total: lynneforrester.com, Etsy, Artavita, Open House Art and Artists & Illustrators). It takes an absolute age! Hopefully my labours will pay off. Reached the (obvious) conclusion that no-one will buy my work if they don't know it's there, so I'm checking and uploading as speedily but meticulously as I can. The aim of this week here is to get all the sites complete with the pictures I have here before I head back down south at the end of the week.
Also finding myself in a state of avoidance: all of my landscape work is done on the smallest pastel paper I could find. I was new to the subject when I started and didn't want to make a noticeable mess. It appears that people quite like the pictures that have evolved and now I have some bigger paper, pads all wrapped in cellophane and I'm too scared to open it. How daft, it's paper, and I use that size all the time with the nude and abstract drawings. Mind over matter is going to need to be harnessed. Maybe a chocolate hobnob is called for first...
