I have already created this year, a painting for our home, one that is a tropical beach scene with a boardwalk to a hut on the water. Phthalo blue is the major colour covering sky and water.
Now, I am starting another painting for my home. This time it is a 30" x 40" canvas to be placed in our recroom, next to the bar close to the wine room. This painting will include an image of a wine barrel, wine glass and bottle, grapes (of course) and a background of a vinyard.
While working on this, I plan to think ahead to a series of paintings, not sure what yet. I hope to have paintings that tell stories. Realism is my main focus. Ahhhh, the artist's conundrum! Yes, I can paint more still life or florals, but I want to do more than that. As an illustrator, who can render anything, I think I should stretch my abilities a bit and create, as I said earlier, stories.
Wish me good luck!
