Quiet Place, 2012, Jo-Ann Sanborn
acrylic on canvas, 8x10, sold.
It's been a couple of busy weeks, mostly working on commissions. They are always stressful for me, as the reality of creating another person's vision gives me fits. Still, The challenge and the income makes it worthwhile, so I do most of what's asked in the hopes of artistic growth. The small painting above is one of a pair that will be traveling soon, and be placed on either side of a fireplace, reminding their owner of the joys of visiting Marco Island.
David and Carol Marine, at Daily Paintworks are doing a Hurricane Sandy Artists Challenge, and the proceeds of the art sale will go to the victims of the dreadful storm. My first painting sold, so I'm putting in a second painting. You can bid on Gull, or another painting to help the storm victims here.
