Thanks to everyone who visited me at my first ever Art-A-Whirl. I met lots of wonderful people, sold a couple of small paintings, learned a lot about the business of selling art, and got lots of ideas from my fellow exhibitors. However, I am wondering if people really would be interested in seeing my work in my studio. Should I have my own open studio event? Let me know what you think in the comments.
Some of the paintings I sold were studies of different colored hen eggs. I painted six of these studies in February, then set up two small still lifes that featured these eggs. Since it was March and I was going crazy with the endless winter, I decided to try my hand at painting clouds into one still live and - voila- the painting that my spouse calls "Eggs on the Beach" was born. Images of one of the studies and the painting are below. Please contact me if you are interested. Happy summer!
