I think I have finally crossed an "it's all in your mind" barrier that I have been struggling with for a while. (we artists have many of these, it's a hazard of the job). This one was the thought form I call - I can't produce good work quickly enough to feed multiple galleries.
Sounds simple to solve, but again, this is an artist's mind we are dealing with, and nothing is more insecure , with the possible exception of a 3 year old's... after moving into a new house.
Anyway, first the good news. My gallery called to say that a couple of paintings sold. yeah! ( the small marigolds) and I need to replace them , they also reminded me that they would like to have another painting similar to one that sold in the past. I need to get this done this week. Yikes! ....
In the past I have always had the thought that a quick painting meant a loose painting. Now I realize ( don't laugh at how simple the solution sounds ) that if I paint smarter or more deliberately accurate earlier I can produce the quality I want in a more efficient manner.
I never said I was a fast learner!
I thought I would show the set up from a different angle. It takes a lot of the glamor away doesn't it? Note the tuna can propping up the picture frame.
Below are three images I pulled from the web. I will use a little artistic license and choose the color and tone that I like.
