Something's Fishy

I have had this idea in my mind, then in my sketchbook about a fish for a little while. I finally decided it was time to add a new creature to my collection of images. This painting is inspired by the adorable movie Finding Nemo. My children adored this movie, in fact so did I when it first came out many years ago. I just need to add a few more finishing touches to the painting for it to be all complete. I plan on making a clock and magnet this week. They will be available in my shop very soon.

A Peek Inside My Sketchbook

Here are a few sketches I wanted to show you since it is now officially spring.

I call this sketch peppermint flower.

I am so amazed by God's beautiful creation. That is why I enjoy creating beautiful scenes of nature so much. Even though I am an allergy sufferer, the spring season, reminds me of new beginnings and hope.

Let's Paint!

I shared with a few of you my goals for this year. I am going to try starting a mobile painting party business. This concept is becoming more and more popular with a physical studio that has public or private parties. My idea is to take my studio to people's homes, businesses, clubhouses, or schools.

I have been working on several samples to have for the host to pick for the party. Here are just a few examples I will compile for my portfolio.

As the instructor I will give art instruction step by step to the group on how to create their very own masterpiece. Here is a a brochure I designed to give to potential customers.

New Landscape Painting

I completed this painting last month, and just need to sign it, then take to my local gallery to have on sale. I will also make this into an inspirational block and maybe magnet. I'm thinking of naming this painting New Horizons. Do you have any suggestions of titles? What inspirational message should I use?
