Game On

The title for this latest watercolour "Game On" also describes the hive of activity I have going on in my studio right now. The gallery end is not in its usual neat as a pin state as I have framing materials, finished works, all laying about as I decide what gets framed and where does it fit on the walls as the game is on very soon when the SALA (South Australian  Living Artists) festival starts in just 11 days time.. By far my biggest angst at the moment is not creating works but choosing what goes in my city exhibition and what stays here in Goolwa, I keep changing my mind.  I recently ordered 10 new frames in varying sizes and have filled 8 already, I have ordered 4 more and two of those already have works painted ready to go in them. The framing costs are the most expensive part of this fabulous hobby so when I sell a few framed works it certainly helps balance the books a bit and of course make room to frame more.
I am inspired by the wonderful images shared by generous photographers around the world and the reference source for this dog came via Pixabay a place where very good quality images are available for artists without copyright issues but the challenge is of course to create a painting that becomes uniquely yours.
