April 29th to May 5th 2010 Fine Artist Blog

I am happy to report that I have syccessfully completed 23 paintings
which leaves 81 paintings to finish before the end of the year.

I know it was a big jump to go from 7 paintings to 23 but I felt the
power of a abstraction weekend overcome me and I went with the flow.
While I was completeing the first 13 abstract paintings I also
reworked 2 old abstracts and made them into something new and I
finally finished an unusual abstract for me - so I am counting
them... Total = 23 so far.

I am tring to explore other forms of painting besides clowns and
carnival figures. That is why I have created digital works and why I
play with abstracts every now and then. One thing you will notice is
that my abstracts (painted or digital) all play with bold color. So
in that since I am still being true to myself.

I have posted a photo of my last painting before the abstract bug hit
which was of a Female Pirate. This painting has a companion painting
of a Male Pirate which I am working on now. This is also the 9th painting in my Carnival Series.

If you would like to see my abstracts you will have to check out my
Facebook Fan page or Flickr. Both of them have me listed as PSOVART.

As to the digital works I have posted some of them on Facebook and some on
Imagekind and Fineartamerica. I myself have not printed any of the
images, but I want too. I just don't have space to display them. My
walls at work and at home are full.

I think I need to sell a few more paintings to make room. Sales are
happening but they are slowly building. One fun thing to note my fans
on facebook have increased to over 500 and I am getting great feedback.

So that is all for now, so until next time happy painting!
