My first entry for a Daily Paintworks Challenge – The Fish Challenge.
8×10 on Gessoed MDF using Liquitex Heavy Body Acrylics.
My last painting of 2016 was completed on December 31.
What do I circle back to? A blender, of course. Acrylic on Ampersand Gessobord- one of the most responsive materials that I have ever used. Rosemary Brushes and Gessobord are a match made in heaven!
This year I’m going to try to sell more art. Last year I sold three pieces without putting too much effort in, so this year I’m going to hustle.
I’ve reopened my Etsy, just waiting on a name change to finalize.
In my personal life I’ve got a few updates – my husband and I just moved from San Jose to Redwood City to shorten our commutes by 45 minutes each way. I can bike to work, and we just built a portfolio carrier for my bicycle based on this Instructable which should work really well! I’ll be taking a figure drawing class through Stanford Continuing Studies this next quarter.
When we moved we ditched the TV and it’s been a month. I haven’t missed it yet.
