My Schmincke paints arrived from Cheap Joes, and I have my roll of Archers hot press 140 lb ready to go and begin painting Susan's techniques. I'm very excited and look forward to her critique of whichever one I choose - and I'm sure I'll send many more to her at just $40/pop until I have a complete grasp of this new style. Will be worth every penny!!
I'll have 13 paintings ready for the show as soon as I finish this last one. I'm aiming for 50 as that what current artist has on display - though many of mine are larger than hers, I can get by with a little less. More importantly the stress of pushing to crank out work is gone and now I can focus on quality. With 8 months to go, if I can get 3 done a month, I'll be just fine. I'll continue to paint for The Galleria on the Lake, too - and I will always fall back on my old ways to create funky, wild backgrounds - or buildings/crowds...though in my heart I know if I take the time to do Susan's style, I will be a much better artist!
Here's the Prizery!
