Project 2, § 3: Saying goodbye

This was the second painting I've done (that I can recall) that was done with little view of the outcome. As stated in a previous post, I made a circle and went from there.

This 'little intention' to my work led this painting to be the first of my original paintings--not commission--to be sold! ...and not to a family member.

Since it's my first, I'm pretty excited about it.

Learning to trust the process has not only helped me feel better about my artwork and myself as an artist, but has been beneficial to me in a new way, hah!

The buyer asked if it were okay to be displayed on a wall without the hanging boats, and I said sure. It actually made me feel better he requested this, since I know the buyer. If I didn't I wouldn't care... but since that wasn't the case, I didn't want to run the risk of him seeing what was written on the boats lest he decided to open them in the future. Just weird.

All I have to do now is get a decent photo of it, because I don't plan to see it in real life again.

I feel almost like it's my message in a bottle. Spread the news, painting! Inspire someone!

That's all :)


  1. Since it's supposed to looked up on, did you paint it like that? Sistine chapel like, or normal'ish
