February was a busy painting month focused upon creating smaller portable items for our the rapidly approaching May opening of our outside Gallery! Many of those subjects were winter subjects, so to achieve better variety and balance in our offerings, I will be focusing upon other seasonal subjects... but again less expensive... portable and are thematically and identifiably based upon the Thousand Islands and Rockport.
This past week, I began that process and produced some smaller works which we will offer as originals... but in some cases... we will be creating new and tourist-driven products which are reproductions of select images which we believe best create both interest sales potential to clients and visitors. People who are on vacation and are travelling have limited space and funds to decide upon making purchases. We hopefully are addressing those two important factors. Time will tell.
We are as well busy with the process of updating the images and text within our new web site. That will be accomplished by late next week. Time seems to be evaporating... so I certainly will be downscaling my posting, but I will post new images as they come off the easel. I will however be focusing less upon the amount of text and the "journalling" aspect of the blog. One cannot service or devote the required time for both the work and the writing. The work pays the bills and like all small businesses, bills are a fact of life. So work will be on the front burner for the timer being. I much enjoy the writing too and the sharing of ideas and processes. There will be ample time in the six month off-season to play in that area.
So here's a little something from this week... a bit of work and time out to play (with paint)... of course! Enjoy!
"An Idyllic Island Indian Summer Day" - water colour on paper 5x7 inches
"The Real RCMP Musical Ride".... Tim Horton's in hand. Maybe Tim Horton's should consider creating 24 Hour Ride Thru's! HA HA!!!
A playful poke at our RCMP and their world famous mounted Musical Ride... Just for fun!
A punny take on Canadian Idol and Teen World Heart Throb... Justin Beaver! Do "dis" intended... towatrds the Beaver! HA HA!!! I'll bet he drinks an odd Tim Horton's as well... as every other Canadian!! It too... is a Canadian Icon!
Good Painting... to ALL!
