A portrait in progress
It's been a fun week of art! I've finally taken the time to start some if my own paintings in addition to my commissioned work. I've found that it's made both tasks more entertaining. When I need a break from the stress of photorealism, I switch to my "for fun" painting, and then enjoy going back to the portrait where my established strengths lie. All in all, I'm getting used to this whole self-employed artist lifestyle.
I had a friend recently comment on a picture of mine saying how she viewed "works in progress as more interesting than some finished work." I think that's a good point, and I couldn't agree more. So I'm going to take that advice and post more images of my work in the making! This is not ground-breaking, I know... I think all artist's blogs are stuffed with images of their artistic process. And who wants to read a blog full of images of the finished cupcakes without images of the baking process too?!? #Noviceblogger
Some recent work
Working my way through commissioned portraits! Adorable dogs, I've had a blast painting them. Looking forward to getting started on my next few portraits this week.
