Here’s what’s been happening in my studio…
Nothing new to show you today, but September was a fun month. I finished 10 paintings that I’d started but never completed, and I had my first public showing at the Mishawaka-Penn-Harris Public Library.
Showing my paintings in public was scary. I must admit that I had plenty of moments filled with self-doubt and fear, but everyone was so supportive and generous. Thank you to all who encouraged me. I was delighted beyond belief to be invited to display again in August 2014.
This Week’s Inspiration
In 2013, I’m doing Inspiration Mondays and Results Thursdays. Every Monday, I’ll post a painting “inspiration” and then on Thursdays, I’ll post how I’m interpreting that inspiration. For October, I’m taking my inspiration from the great ideas you all have given me. In fact, I received so many suggestions, they will take me through the rest of the year. Here’s the list…
Daisy, Bella & Roxy – Autumn
Urban Hounds – Autumn, All Hallows Eve, Harvest & Halloween (old school)
Amy – Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz (75th anniversary of the movie), Poinsettia Girl, Snow Faerie Girl, Identical Twins, “It’s a Small World” 3 girls of different ethnicities together & Bunny and Flattery as girls
Graceful Greyhounds – Winter
Molly The Wally – Fall
Roxy the Traveling Dog - Fall
Tales And Tails – Harvest, Orange, Halloween & Fairy Tale
Dip-Dip and The Bridge – Nostalgia & Vintage
Two Greyhound Town – Fall
Peaceful dog – Ocean
Mollie & Alfie – Bare branches on trees & Dew on the grass
Greyhounds CAN Sit – Happiness
You all certainly didn’t disappoint! If I missed anyone’s inspiration idea, it was completely unintentional. Please let me know in the comments or send me an email. I promise that I will do every one of these. Let’s start with…AUTUMN.
