Busy painting these days and enjoying retirement and grandchildren. I generally post at Sofia's_daughter on Instagram. I have been painting /practicing with acrylic paint, as of late, and I must admit I am enjoying the journey.
A few of the many paintings i have been working on this spring. I recently participated in The Vintage Market. What an enjoyable day. The market organizers did a super job with advertising and the market was really crowded. The day was pretty much flawless . I have been posting on Facebook and Instagram under sofia's daughter and on Instagram under sofias_daughter. It's really just so easy to post and access these sites.
The bottom picture is a photo of my booth at the market. It looks rather hodgepodge in the photo-hopefully it looked better in person.
I recently started a facebook page sofia and flossie, my friend, a potter,artist, jewelry maker,and i are teaming up together in order to participate in future markets. I'm really excited....
Its been a long time! I am painting almost daily but i don't seem to access my laptop as often as i used to in order to post. I am taking a watercolor class in February so i have begun to practice again. I am always so frustrated at the lack of vibrancy in the colors and the need to add layers oh so carefully to not overwork and painting.
I have been painting all summer. Falling in and out of love with color and my paintings,surrounding myself with nests of art and books and of course walking my dogs. Enjoying the weather and good friends. Life is really as good as it gets.
I am participating in an art show this weekend and so i have been busy getting ready;adding finishing touches,sorting and pricing. My space is roughly the size of a door-so i arranged my paintings on the floor to see how the paintings will fit. I have additional small watercolors to hang or set on a shelf . This should be a fun weekend i am anxiously awaiting the show. Happy summer.
