I didn’t quite gauge how much work would be involved when I signed up for the Country Living Mag Christmas Fair this November.
But I am enjoying the challenge of ‘quick-decide-what-your-actual-style-is-and -stick-to-it-then-make- a-tonne-of -art’
That was the biggest challenge – learning what art style of mine I actually love. Then deciding what I am going to paint? And how can I produce a lot of it within my budget? What’s the best size to make for shoppers? What does my ideal customer look like?
My lounge, ahem, ‘studio’ has now being overtaken by piles of white frames and canvas’. Some will make the cut, and go proudly to the printers, others will be tossed shamelessly into the slosh pile.
Must stop looking at other artists’ Instagram! It’s really interrupting my flow of imagination.
However, I am enjoying making a few pieces of retro nursery art. Retro kitchen art. Just retro art in general. I think this is my jam. (I have actually painted retro jam)
