It was Artfest… Continue reading Art Barn Retreat!
The problem child painting started out just like two others that caused no major issues. The first easy one… The second easy one (on the right bottom of these four)… And then this creature… Finally done!!
Several people have asked if I’m selling the flower series paintings (THANK YOU AGAIN!), so I had to sit down and work out some pricing. After some research on different ways to price art, I decided on a square inch pricing with incremental increases plan.
