Today is Canada Day. There are celebrations and parades in most every city and town in the country. A short distance from my home, there is a farm which has this very old and weathered mail box at the end of their drive. I thought it would be appropriate to paint and post for Canada Day. This is a little study I did - and I have not gotten to the next stage of painting it larger and better. I am thinking that at the rate I am going, it may be next year's Canada Day when the larger edition is completed.
I am almost finished with the Spanish lady - just a few details and she will be posted. I have decided that full sheet watercolor paintings are not good for quickly finishing and posting on a blog - for me they take a great deal of time.
As well, I have learned a good lesson... Sunflowers did not sell in the charity auction for Empty Bowls - nor did other artists' work which was also on a larger scale. I guess one has to account for the fact that smaller might sell more readily than larger. Next time, I will enter something much smaller.
So... if there are any people who would like to purchase Sunflowers out there, here is the picture of it again. It is acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas, and is 30 inches by 30 inches. The edges are painted black so that it is ready to hang as is. You do not need a frame for it.
If you wish to purchase this painting, or commission one similar to it, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy Canada Day to all Canadians. And in 3 days, Happy Independence Day to all Americans!
