I'm painting again. It's been a long while since I have but suddenly I feel inspired. Maybe it's the weather. Maybe it's that my daughter is more self sufficient. I dunno. But I'm painting again.
Forever it seems that I've been fascinated with new home communities and developments. Not that I want to own one myself. I'm not sure why they're so fascinating to me. I think it's the rhythm of the houses in contrast to the plain land. Around here everything is built on old farmland. No trees in sight. This just adds to the contrast. Now with the mortgage thing going on I wonder how many families in these homes can really afford them? Are they hollow and empty? What do these people do for a living? Do they have relationships with their neighbors?
I'm going to try - note, I'm not promising anything - to paint everyday. If I get a painting done a week that'd be wunderbar. It's good practice. I'm stepping out and am taking a risk -- I'm going to post these for sale as I make them. I figure I have that etsy shop now, I might as well put it to use.
So, here's my first one. The painted part measures 7.5" x 8". It is painted with gouache. Since this is a new endeavor for me I've priced it relatively low.
