I started painting some smaller pieces recently. I was thinking that I needed to have a variety of sizes of paintings available, with an array of prices. It took a bit of work to get used to painting on such a small canvas. I didn't have brushes that were small enough! Once I got my system going, I sure had a lot of fun. Now I enjoy using smaller brushes and painting in the minature arena. It's a whole different world!
I went down to Kamaole II Beach Park here in Maui the other day. I thought I would try painting at a picnic table I frequent. I was thinking this would be a great way for people to stop by and watch, maybe even buy one of my little 4 x 4 inch paintings.
It wasn't quite so easy. I was at the mercy of the weather...wind was starting to pick up so I wouldn't be able to stay very long because the paint was drying on my brush. A few people did stop by and say hello, what are you doing.. that sort of thing- which is great, just what I wanted. But then a woman stopped by and sat down and proceeded to just chat. I can't paint and chat. I have now learned this. Made note to self!
