So my inner critic has been harping on me about the sky studies I've been doing. I am in love with doing those and the face experiment paintings. Love love love them. There is something about staring at the sky and painting nothing but it. I love the sky. Love the colors in it, the bright oranges, bright pinks, intense yellows, deep purples and shades of blue. It’s amazing to me.
I got the mail when the sky was setting and the front of my house faces due west. I stepped outside to the most amazing orange and pink glow I’ve ever seen. I vowed that I’d start painting the sky as it set and rose. It took me awhile but I’ve started.
I’ve been posting some of the images to flickr. But I decided to post the little skyscapes to my Artfire account. They each measure about 5×7 inches and are on either Fabriano Artistico 140lb watercolor paper or Stonehenge 140lb 100% cotton printmaking paper. I’m putting them up for $15 each and $5 shipping. I’ll combine shipping on multiple purchases. (These would look fantastic matted and framed 3 to a group.)
As I listed them my inner critic said, “Don’t do it! They’ll never sell. They are just studies. It’s junk.” I figured eff him, I’m putting them up and I’ll let people decide what they like, not my critic.
