The first time I heard the phrase "creative cling" I immediately resonated with it's meaning. For me, creative cling is the tendency to hold onto everything little thing I create...like it's a baby or something. Whether it is a pile of favorite quotes written in calligraphy or water color pieces, collage, or oil paintings, I fall in love with them all. But I am saying goodbye to these two oils.
Sold! Someone in California "had to have them". Never ceases to amaze me. Even after I sell hundreds of pieces, I know I will feel amazed that someone loves them as much as I do.
All I need to do is sign them, pack them up, kiss them goodbye, and put them in the mail. And I am delighted to do so.
This one I painted last spring (2013) sitting outside on my back porch. The day was perfect and I refused to stay inside. Watching the sun come across the day and trying to capture it was pure joy.
In January I took part in a "30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge" by Leslie Seaeta and painted this one out of my imagination. I love the way mountains tend to appear lavender and pink as they disappear in the distance. My fantasy mountains were just about color, not realism.
Currently I am putting the finishing touches on a 16x20" oil painting of an old country store I visited a couple of summers ago. I'll be posting it, and it's story, soon. Every painting has a story.....and free shipping. :)
Enjoy the day!
