Lily Pads and Circles

The graduates of the 2014 "Make Art Work" marketing workshops in Hartford, CT have decided to continue to meet on our own to share our goals, challenges and accomplishments. It is so nice to have a support group of fellow artists. We met today and each showed our work to the group and received feedback. Next meeting will be January.

We have all been busy. One member reported a number of sales, two members will be part of an Artist Open Studios event this November in Hartford. Our challenges continue to be marketing and finding time in our studios.

Carrie showed us some of her finished pieces and also some work in progress. One of her paintings reminded me of a digital painting of mine. Hers was more abstract using circles to suggest lily pads. Mine started with a photograph of lily pads and then I painted over the photo and changed and added colors.

Red Scarf

I designed this to be 20x20. Wouldn't it make a nice silk scarf?

The Last Rose of Summer

A flower does not have to be perfect to be interesting. This rose with the early morning sun's rays on its wet, icy petals has its own beauty.

Creating Abstracts

I enjoy creating abstracts with the combination of a photograph and digital painting. 
This is named "Solar System on the Edge."
