Tuesday, Feb. 13, 2007 - Green Hat

Well, yesterday's class wasn't a total bust. I did finish the Green Hat painting and I'm pleased with a lot of it and I think it looks more like a watercolor than most things I paint.

Today, I'll be working on a Valentine's card for my Sweetie and staying in away from the snow, sleet and freezing rain that's outside today.

In watching this one develop, I am glad that you never lost the elegance of her pose and the clarity of her skin colors really enhances this. I don't know what it is about painting hats, but I have enjoyed doing that a lot and yours looks to be very well-done.

If this is a saleable piece, I would think it would look wonderful in an expensive dress shop, it just has that look!

Thanks, Susan. I'm so glad you stop by regularly and check in :) And happy for you about your new studio!! Yes, there is something very girly about hats and scarves, isn't there. All of my pieces are for sale, I think. I haven't had anyone stop by that falls in love with one enough to offer to buy it - but I'd be willing to offer any paintings - I'm getting too many to keep here at home and the walls are filled with Jerry's photographs :)

You really must do as I do....lean them up, 4-5 deep, against the formal dining room wall. It makes for an interesting conversation piece when having guests! Seriously, although I don't want to become commercial with everything I paint, I have to consider everything to be fair game for selling so we are not overrun by my artwork. As you can see by my studio photos it will not be a gallery studio; it is definitely a working, hopefully functional, studio. I am participating in another sale this weekend and hope to sell a few more paintings. Gotta pay for this studio!
