Before I get to my point today, here is the finished portrait I've been working on. The shirt was a mindboggler.
This was done on Ampersand Pastelbord, as are most of my paintings. I just hated to have that chip in the corner, but what can you do after the portrait is started? I'd love to get some feedback on this portrait.
So. I've been reading so many blogs and listening to what artists say in hopes of improving my work or my blog. I was so excited to find a blog about starting an art career for over 50 year old artists ( Ancient Artist ), because I fit in that category. I have noticed there are a lot of us
out there, especially women. From now on, I will direct my comments especially to that audience.
I have almost every day free, but can't seem to get myself organized. Anyone out there with advice? I am not the Energizer bunny, that's for sure! My little studio looks like a tornado swept through it. I intend to organize it, but if I spend energy on painting or drawing, there's no energy left for the studio.
I'd love to hear from you about your schedule, studio, experience with galleries, etc.
