You know, when you get an idea for a painting, it is very hard to sit still, concentrate or do anything else but think about that painting. In this case, I’ve been thinking about painting my lemon tree for about two years. It’s good to know, what I saw then, turned out the way I wanted, even after all of this time. I hope you enjoy this, it was a pleasure and loads of fun to paint. Especially because I could use my photos, and go out to my yard and see the real thing.
This painting is available on Ebay, and you may enter the auction site by clicking on the image. Peace and prayers…
I’m a day late at this post, but nevertheless, it was a difficult decision yesterday on which painting to do. It was a toss up between my lemon tree and my palm tree. As you can see the palm tree won. I’ve been wanting to paint this tree for a long time. It started out as a tiny little tree and has grown very quickly over the years. I plan on doing a video of this painting. It is fun and fearless to approach. You don’t have to use your left brain at all, and frankly, with all that is going on in the world, we need a break from our left lobes! Thinking and creating from the right side of your brain, is like a mental mediation, and good for the soul.
I am also very inpsired today, because I see my colorful sunflower painting is currently being bid on Ebay. If you are interested, there are two days left. One thing for sure, selling a painting for an artist is the greatest motivator to paint. So tomorrow, watch out lemon tree! In the meantime, if you are interested in this painting, you can click on it and it will take you to the Ebay auction.. Peace and Prayers…
To watermark or not seems to be the big question. I notice many successful artists do not watermark their artwork, and have no worries or concerns about people downloading their images. I guess if someone really needed to download an image because they could not afford to buy an original painting or print, it would not break the bank…but what if thousands of people did it? What if hundreds of thousands of people did it?
Nowadays with wireless high quality image printers, anyone can make a print. Anyone can copy the image, upload it, and put it on anything they want to. And, even if you do watermark the image, if someone wants it badly enough, they are going to Photoshop the watermark out!
New painting completed today..16″ x 20″..called “Daydreaming” I wondered when I was painting this pelican, if he ever had daydreams about being an Eagle! This painting is painted my new pallette of colors, more vivid, and much more risky! Enjoy!
