Stillness (Feb. Marathon #4)

gp_feb14_04_fbMy friend Tiff Pollard came over tonight and I cut some plywood for her to paint on.  Her plan is to make some small paintings to sell at a reasonable price….She may even paint them daily.  I know a guy that did that once….!  hehe.  So I cut her plywood up and things were going smoothly.  She had never been here before, so she got to see my studio and stuff.  It was a good time.  My saw quit working about 3/4 of the way through.  I don’t know for sure what is wrong with it.  I will have to deal with it tomorrow.  So I gifted Tiff a few small panels that I had laying around and sent her on her way.  Go get your art on, Tiff!

I needed to break yesterday and today I needed to try something new.  I have been watching a few videos on pinstriping.  And tonight’s painting features my first ever attempt at the art of pinstripes.  It is super fun!  This is a four color design that I made up as I went along.  I free handed this.  One thing I learned is that I do not have the correct tools.  So a trip to the art store may be in order.  But I am extremely proud of this painting.  I needed to just have some fun.  All too often lately painting has been an uphill battle.  It was super nice to just have some fun.  And I am glad I did.  This helped me return to painting as a meditation.  As a practice.  And I am glad I can do that with the Gift Prolific.  Not only are the gifts a Zen experience for me….but the paintings can be as well.  I had forgotten that….and tonight I found it again.  Thanks so much for following.  Take care.

As with all of the February Marathon paintings this one is for sale on my ETSY page.  $125 dollars plus shipping.  This is painted on a 9×12 inch wood panel.  When you buy art in the Feb. Marathon you are giving me the resources I need to continue to practice my art and my gifting.  So thank you for supporting me.  Take care.

If you have a tough time or just don’t like ETSY and you still want to purchase this painting let me know and I can send you my PAYPAL info.  Take care.
