Hello there! Today I got the links up and running. I am trying to finish at least one page a day and then address the required fine tuning (page positions etc). I am having a hard time writing the "info" page. Also, I am not exactly sure what I will put on the portfolio page just yet, but for now it will be some of these sketch book paintings (better ones I hope) and some postcards, and oh ... I don't know what else.
These are not very good but they are little free-hand drawings/paintings done with ink and acrylics. I like the vast little field of color because I love the feel of painting large strokes with smooth paint. I would like to make more little paintings like these to sell if I can find anyone interested in them. I think they will be relatively cheap, because I am not sure anyone will like my style and I will have to feel the whole thing out.
Also, I am switching paints a bit. I may be selling some acrylics (as well as a hardly used, good quality potters wheel and a brand-new lendrum double treadle spinning wheel). I have some student quality acrylics and some professional quality acrylics. They were originally between 4 and oh 20 dollars a piece. For some strange reason though, I LOVE the cheap 99 cent acrylic paint for plaster figures on watercolor paper. If the permanence is all right, I may switch over to that or I may switch to gouache. I am looking for a smooth milky opaque texture. Am I crazy?
Okay this post is way, way to long! Sorry about that. Hey, if you don't mind I think I will respond to comments in the comment section for a little while. Let me know if you are unhappy with this or if you would prefer that I email or snail mail *smile* Thank you all for your kind words, help and support through this time of transition (we are almost there, I can feel it) and always! xox=vv.
