“Confidence”

“Surfer”

As we used to say when I lived in LA, we’ve got the mountains and the sea! And I have a deadline to get a few more of these Aquabord™ paintings done before early November. I would have had a couple more by now, but lucky me, they sold as soon as they hit the blog and Facebook. What to do, complain about success? Not here, even if that means I have fewer of these little guys to take with me to my next horse expo, which if I haven’t mentioned lately promises to put 8,000-10,000 pairs of eyeballs in front of my booth. I have three more drawings already on boards, ready to paint, and I hope to take some more drawings with me to paint on site like I did at the Reins of Life dressage show. Keeps me occupied and also presents an opportunity to chat with the curious.

In the meantime, I need to find out why my camera has decided that it can’t deal with color temperatures in auto-white balance mode. It doesn’t even like daylight anymore! So it’s even worse when it tries to decipher all the different colors of CFL bulbs I’m now using instead of the old fashioned incandescents. This is what happens when they put way too many features on a camera and you try to cheat with automation. Or maybe I’m just getting way more picky since I have a painting on Coloring the Wind’s website (http://www.coloringthewind.com/) which a neat place to combine your own choices of illustration and poetry on a card or poster. I want the colors to be absolutely perfect for them, and now have to fiddle around endlessly to get them that way. Not to mention the note cards I’ll be taking with me to the big show–colors had to be right on them, too!

  1. So glad to hear you’re selling as fast as you can create, Alli! Not bad news at all. You’re really blossomed as an artist over the years I’ve been watching you and deserve this demand. It’s so much fun to read your updates and see your latest creations. I’ll be interested to hear (and imagine you’ll share on the blog) how the note card sales go. I’m rooting for you.
