Start of a New Life for 3 Escargots

This morning I worked on a painting, but am not satisfied with it enough to put it for sale. I put aside my palette knives and decided to play with clay today. Three little escargots popped out.

When they’re dry, I’ll sand and paint them… so they will look quite a bit different in the end. I bought a different clay than what I used for the finished escargot. This one is very hard to work with – it’s too soft, so I lose much detail. I’ll see how the final product turns out to see if I’ll continue to buy this kind of clay, or return to the other type.

Completion of 2 Oil Paintings

Today was a very productive day! I woke up early and both started and finished a 20 x 33 cm oil painting. I was still feeling the vibe, so when the kids took their naps, I went ahead and started (and finished) another one. I can’t believe I was able to finish them so quickly.

And the second painting…

Both paintings are already up for sale on Etsy in my Etsy Store.
