I managed to get my work station at the gallery positioned a bit further from the corner to open up access the the ‘Noble Eagle’ painting on the end. And it was more conducive for people to see me working and chat. I've included a photo which I took just before starting painting today.
The weather hasn’t been helping attendance but the few that came, moved me with their responses.
- On how the paintings brought you close up to the totems and seeing the detail & colours otherwise missed when you see the totems in real life.
- Couldn’t say enough about the realism and complexity of colour.
- It was all about the wood, textures etc.
The gallery is also enjoying having me there and painting. I get maybe 1/2 the time to paint but the access to people is so important. I would have missed all these conversations if I hadn’t been there.
So with all this buzzing through my mind, I packed up at the end of the afternoon and looking forward to tomorrow. No sales yet, but so much potential.
