I have been prepping panels and canvases for new art today. I will be listing many for sale here. They will be available a few every day with a big batch to be listing by the end of the week. I feel excited to share these new works with you!
I am pretty much caught up on all the orders that came in last week. Thank you, everyone who placed an order! I am starting some new art projects including birds and other still life and floral paintings, some animals. I am also writing a book on acrylic paints. More to come on that later. What are you interested in seeing from me?
I have moved a lot of my watercolor painting and acrylic painting to my Idaho art studio. They are both paints that dry quickly, which allows me to easily ship and produce them. While the actual painting time can be painstaking slow with watercolor, they are dry within 24 hours. Look forward to more watercolor and acrylic paintings as well as my usually favorite oil paintings.
It's time to prepare more wood panels for art. To prepare wood panels, first they are cut to size; second, a notch in put in one side for hanging; third, they are sanded on all sides. Finally, each panel is gessoed and sanded three or four times with a 24-hour dry time between each layer of gesso drying. Then they are ready for the first layer of paint. :D
