I've been too busy working as a finish carpenter for a neighbor down the street and remodling our master bathroom, which is the last room we have to do; to blog.
On the 27th we're flying to Michigan to freeze our asses off since the temperature there is below freezing and today it is in the mid-eighties with lots of sunshine. Those with Parkinson's have problems ajusting to high or low temperatures. Warm temps we sweat more while cold causes shaking like hypothermma. However, we'll get a chance to visit with my brother and sister and our youngest daughter's family.
I have done some painting so see what I've accomplished on my website. I've been toying with the idea of specializing my art on one theme, bocee ball - sounds strange but playing on a sandy beach offers some ball configurations that present interesting compositions. To sell more paintings its been said that artist should create a recognizable style that the public can identify, much like Thomas Kinkade did. However, the variety found in nature is what inspires me and I believe that offering different painting compositions will appeal to a wider audience.
A painting that speaks to a viewer by tapping into a memory or affects them in a way that stimulates their desire to purchase the work.
Home or business interior decorators are not interested in forming a personal connection to a painting but instead their focus is on how it fits into the colors of a room. This is why they tend to select colorful impressionistic, abstract, or expressionistic art.
