Untitled! Framed 20x22
Picking up from yesterday I am building the view out the window. Darkening the grass, starting the road.
Sky is in. Trees in the background. Now I will go over the whole painting and just smooth it out, softening any edges.
I have not priced it yet, whenever I finish a painting I know is strong my immediate reaction is that it is worth $$$$$! I need to live with it a little, get distracted with a new painting and then I am able to be reasonable! Pricing for an artist is really hard. And after 40 years of painting you tend to think prices should be higher. Linda always lectures new artists (and me!) that the price is simply what your own market can bare. You can put any price you want on a painting. But what will it reasonably sell for? Linda is very in tune with my market, she attempts to soothe my ego... and as a business person she has a price structure we use, and occasionally like with the covered bridge we go outside the structure But if you are seriously interested...make me an offer!!
I am now ready to start my commission. I will have a drawing tomorrow.
