There is something so beautiful and satisfying in doing one of these little dress paintings. I just adore them. I love working in a series of similar subjects. So I'll keep going on this until I'm ready to switch to a more boyish design.
I kinda like the red flowers better ("Red Dream.") My friend likes the white ones better ("White Blossoms.") Both are 5x7, available now.
Who doesn't love a painting with thick paint? It's so much fun to do too. It's a lot harder than I thought. It's hard not to mix up the colors in the wrong way. Like van Gough would have multiple colors really thick next to each other with wet paint without mixing the colors too much.
Here are two thick painted garden flowers that I just added to my Etsy shop for this week for my "Valentines Floral" series. There are 8 paintings currently available.
I had a client this month who wanted the grand Tetons in black and white watercolors. And then she wanted black and white watercolor trees. They were about 16X20 inches.
Online Art Show:
This month I did an online art show. I was really pleased with how it went. I was really surprised to see how many people really loved the flowers. I really love the landscapes, but it was just fun to see what people like. I met my sale goal, and tried some new things.
Here are a couple of landscapes that I am selling. They are still available. Click here to see the available paintings: Libby Dibb Art Etsy shop
I feel like the picture doesn't do the painting justice because of the really pretty texture. I love this one so much. It's called "Standing Tall." I think of this lovely tall tree that stands out next to the two smaller trees. Sometimes we need to be bold, different, and stand tall as we go through our fall leaves and change. I'm really tall for a girl (6 feet), and I always felt like a head taller than all my friends. It used to be annoying, and now it's just awesome and I love it.
I love the peacefulness of this painting. Again, it has really awesome texture. Love the serenity. It's called "Solitude."
