My painting as “drama queen”. I say this because the colors aren’t nearly so dramatic in person. All I can say at this point, since none of the background has been touched yet, is that in real life it will get darker and more dramatic. But unlike most of my paintings, the lily pads will not be smothered in anything. We’ll see how this plan goes.
In the meantime, I’m looking forward to an interesting experience at an upcoming seminar this weekend. Having been an itinerant art seller for years now, one would think that I would have my sales spiel down pat. I have no trouble talking about my art or art in general but I do struggle to engage visitors to my booth in the first place unless they also happen to be of the chatty type. This seminar is geared at those of us who somehow manage to let a lot of potential sales walk away. So the point will be to practice engaging folks to discuss their interest in art (and my art) without sounding like a used car salesman (how much do you want to pay for this art???). We’ve been asked to bring a piece of art to “discuss”. Hoping one of my Sky Pads doesn’t dwarf everybody else’s selections.
