Sunrise Over Mt. Baker - 24x30", acrylic SOLD
Here is the finished Mt. Baker commission. It's a gift for his wife's birthday, coming up in a few weeks. I can't wait to hear what her reaction is! He loves it, and I hope she will too...
I know I haven't been overly productive in the painting department over the past 6 weeks. I've gone from being a full-time painter to taking on a part-time job. I had the perfect routine that worked great: getting up early, walking my dog, having breakfast, checking emails and updating my website and blog, then out to the backyard studio for the day to paint. I miss that! But I suppose even the best routine has to change if a bit of money needs to come in. People just haven't been buying art over the past few months. The job that I took on is great, medical sales (my old career), and I do enjoy it. However, it's taking over my days that are supposed to be my painting days. 2 days a week is turning into 3 to 4 days. It's a salary job, so set amount of pay no matter how long you spend doing it. Yikes! On my painting days I end up doing at least 3 hours of email and phone calls and I can't get enough done in the studio ... Sigh. I hope it settles into a better routine soon.
And of course people will start buying art soon. Right?
