In my Introduction, I have said that I love to paint. I enjoy the creative element of Watercolours and love to see the paint flow and create different effects with it.
I tend to create smaller pieces, partly because they can be created more quickly but also because they are easier to post for online sales and easier to transport if travelling to an event. Larger pieces tend to be for Exhibitions or home.
Now, this is my point, what inspires you to buy a piece of Art ? Is it an impulse – just because it ‘speaks’ to you? Or something you look for to ‘complete’ a room or as a gift?
Many people have said to me that they haven’t any room left for paintings, hence why I have my art reproduced on to gift or household items that I like to call ‘useful’ art.
But why not swap paintings around ? Many of my paintings are hung in my small studio or around our home.
When I have an Exhibition, paintings are taken down and replaced with a different one. I find that I then ‘notice’ and look at the replacement much more than I had previously.
So, as we redecorate our rooms – why not rearrange our artwork ? You will be surprised at how much more you ‘look’ at a piece of art if you move it or swap it for another that you like.
