Now that my partner has received her painting from me, I can show it. It was something I did, trying to work on shadow shapes and this photo (from WetCanvas) had a good shadow shape that was intriguing. So it's a much darker painting than some of my other peppers - back when I was playing with peppers and whites.
My partner, BK, in Georgia, says she loves it. So that's always a good thing! And I just happened to have a nice mat that fit this one perfectly, so I sent it ready to pop into a frame. I don't cut my own mats so finding mats that fit the sizes I'm painting (because I always forget to paint in a standard size) is not easy. For our SWAP(SharingWithArtistPartners) group, we paint small - either 5" x 7" or 7" x 9" with a slight border so it fits in standard sized mats anyone can pick up.
I love the excitement everyone feels when the first paintings start to arrive and each SWAP we have members from so many countries, it's fun to get a painting and send a painting to - India, Australia, Great Britain, Brazil, the Philippines, etc. Then you can say you are an "internationally known artist." ha ha
I dreamed I was painting last night. But since I'm coming down with something, I may just have to dream about painting until I'm feeling like doing anything but lazing around on the sofa, reading and sipping hot drinks.
