SMALL PAINTINGS July 21 2017, 0 Comments
A long time ago (in a galaxy far far away :) I used to paint. Then a corporate job came along, and for 15 years I was absorbed in that. But life gives you twists and turns, and second chances, so in 2010 I was able to devote all my time to jewelry making. This summer I also picked up a brush again.
A friend was organizing a fundraiser, and asked me to be among artists creating small pieces to be auctioned off (the proceeds benefited ACLU, Planned Parenthood, and Lambda Legal). Although I hadn't done anything similar for quite a long time (aside from some minor sketching and doodling), I painted a small abstract, someone liked it, and bought it!
After that I realized how much I craved color, playing with it, getting results of your work quickly, right in front of you. Mixing colors, playing with textures. I have decided to "go for it", and then to show some of the little paintings on my social media, and the responses have been very kind. The next step was to list some paintings on my website.
They're now available under the "objects" tab, along with the little brass dishes.
