Today so far is much like many of my days. I woke up had breakfast and started creating art. I worked from about 8am till about 1pm; had lunch. Now I sit here typing this.
I started a painting of magnolias that were outside my house. (they are no longer in season but were just a few days ago. I think the flowers against the backdrop of my house makes a great pattern. A sense of the abstract in the natural world. The photo I took has a flatness to it yet it also is a real scene.
Anyway not much to report. I have continued to post on Saatchi.com To be more accurate the address is www.saatchiart.com/tarastephanos This is where I will be posting my higher priced items. My ebay store is http://stores.ebay.com/blueartmouse .
I love to paint but some self control is needed for sure. Today is a lovely day and I would love to be outside. Great thing about being an artist is that you can kind of make up your own schedule. Still don't be fooled I usually put in well over the "normal" forty hours a week between my art and my part-time sometimes multiple part-time jobs.
I ordered an inflatable kayak this morning and hoping it provides me with fun and inspiration. I have used kayaks before but I had to borrow them. Now I will own one; a two sitter for me and my husband. He's really excited his birthday is in a couple days and the boat should arrive a few days later.
Little Leeah whom is a neighbor and; I am her Aunt? (Long story) was over last night their was a power outage and so she came over to visit. (We have a generator) She flew through the house and had a great time and felt the need to look through all my artworks. She said I was like Picasso. I don't have kids of my own . Partially by choice; partially because of a physical problem. It made me feel as if I was giving the gift of art to the next generation. I have other nephews and nieces as well. It feels good to know I could pass down my love for art to others.
