Ernest Hemingway, asked about writing, had a solid piece of advice: “Write every day and finish what you start.” I’ve thought about that, and the workman-like attitude behind it. Get in there and do your job, each day, every day. Many of the best artists are disciplined craftsmen, and I’m going to take Hemingway’s advice for a spin. I’m doing a painting each day this month. 30 paintings in 30 days. Being November, the Month of the Feast, the theme is Things We Love to Eat and Drink. See the first one, “Pop Corn” below.
A painting a day, and yes, they’re for sale. And they’re affordable: $99, which includes free first-class shipping. You can order on my Etsy store by clicking here. Check this blog every day (or the Etsy store) to see the new painting du jour. Each one will be 5″ by 7″ on sturdy illustration board, and made with watercolors, gouache paint and ink.
I’ll need some content, folks, so if you have any suggestions for good subjects, leave a comment or write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. What goodies would you like to see memorialized as art? What’s your favorite comfort food? Your most-loved childhood treat? If you moved away tomorrow, what local specialty would you miss the most? And, looking ahead, what other themes would you suggest?
Today’s painting is a lovely piece of pop American iconography: “Pop Corn”. To purchase, click here.
