Purple Hydrangeas

I came across these lovely warm blushing purple hydrangeas at the grocers a couple days ago and had to have them.  There were traditional baby blue, pink, and white hydrangeas.  But these ones caught my eye.   I am enjoying two things.  First.  I am working on painting these.  I am realizing that when I paint larger, I need much more paint and larger brushes.  That should make sense.  But sometimes one doesn't realize until after starting that one is in the habit of working on a smaller scale.  So here is the first run.  I will be adding more paint and layers to this including larger and more generous brush strokes of paint, and darkening glazes in shadow areas....

Hanging Art

What is the best way to hang your art? There are many articles and videos online regarding this subject.  But what I can tell you is that it always pays to get your art up and out of the box!  Even if its not perfect.  For example, if you purchase a painting like the one shown.  And hope to have it framed but want to hang it unframed until you are ready to frame, I think that's a great idea.  Maybe you will grow to like it without the frame!   Art is so fun because it adds life to a room.  It can brighten any corner.   So go ahead and get your new artwork up on that wall....

Contact ME!

Over ten years ago, I started by selling my art on eBay and Etsy.  This was great for my buyers because, as an unknown artist, they had a third party to mediate and guarantee compliance, satisfaction, or at least a place to complain if there were any grievances.  But I realize here on my independent website (this section run via shopify), there is not a third party to go to if there are problems.  Or hopefully to leave rave reviews!     So here you go.  Here are places you can reach me.  If you have any troubles with your orders, please feel free to email me at angelamariemoulton@yahoo.com     It's possible I don't get your email due to...
