Nice painting. I did a couple of street scenes. They take a lot of time and patience. A fellow I knew who could not draw freehand used to take photos of the parts of a painting he wanted to do and project them on the canvas. Then he'd trace them and paint in the tracing. He was pretty successful. This looks like it was done that way.
Wishing you find a successful way to complete your projects.

Hi pixipixil,
Oh never mind, I was going to give you some information on the arts but it sounded too know-it-all so I deleted the text but than could not remove the empty post. Arlene

Hi arlenez. Now you have me curious. I have a BA in fine art--major painting. You?
arlenez

No, I took a minor in Fine Arts because of a conflict in what the instructors wanted. Don't remember now what the issue was, but I have been a Fine Artist for fifty years.

It's really sad that there is very little understanding how much the Fine Arts need support so they can continue to create instead of working a full time job to live.

I ended up getting a BA in Psychology and then a Masters in Clinical Psychology. No money there also at that time.

Sounds like my life story. I have an MSEd in musice ed. No money ther either. For 7 years I did freelance greeting cards. You'd think that would have been ideal but the most I ever made for a year was $5000. By the time I got through wracking my brain for ideas and executing what little got accepted I had no more energy or desire to do fine art. I did a few pieces in that time and sold four each for a pittance.

Forgot to mention I have been painting for years and have about 200 fine art pieces. They are insured. Also have many greeting card paintings.
I gave up looking for gallery rep. Had one once but it was a joke so I withdrew my work. Sold a piece from the site of my painting for a good price. Was commissioned once. Other wise my stuff hangs around the house and is stored.

Hi pixipixil

$5000! Wow!

I think my income was in the hundreds, I guess. Never kept a record. Let me know if you ever want to do that again. I am an idea person, also. What about you?
There are hundreds (plus) small galleries in the USA that sell cards besides retail. What was your kind of market? No money in Music ED. Was it a the teacher's low pay problem?
I have 2D Wall art for sale which I sell for a reasonable amount with a payment plan but need someone to do the marketing.I also do 3D. Do you know anyone? My art is non-objective. Everyone sees something different because of the brain's individualism.
I am concerned that the youth will figure out the no money issue with Fine Art and the field will die but design art will continue.

As for the Music Ed the schools were shrinking or outright dropping their music programs. I only could get a 2 day a week job at a Catholic Grammar school which payed very little.
Since you seem to have been selling your work regularly you might be able to interest an agent.
My pastels are conventional framed flat art of landscapes and flowers. My acrylics are unframed on board cut in various shapes that relate to the contours of the subject matter but don't follow them. I have done several 3D pieces such as a huge iris bloom of 3 interlocking sections; a hanging basket of geraniums with several interlocking planes of flowers and real macrame strands with which to hang it; A portrait with cut out sections and a mounted toilet paper holder which has a long strip of large frames unrolling from it like film depicting my life as I sit clothed on top of the toilet seat holding my paintbrush and the whole thing is reflected in the black bathroom tiles. Explaining that would take a while. I call it Fade to Black.

WOW! I'm extremely impressed with both you, pixi, and you, arlenez. What an interesting and talented group we puzzlers make up. I have a friend who's a professional artist and artist's rep in Santa Fe, NM - she started out working at Hallmark in the early 60s, went on to design children's wear through the 80s and has been freelance since then. Wish the 3 of you could meet and I could listen in on the conversation! What an education I would get!

We could all learn many amazing things eavesdropping on that conversation!

You two might be disappointed at least from my end.
I am so disappointed in the lack of artistry in greeting cards today. Hallmark used to have art so good it was frameable...no more. Your friend must have been really good.

Pixipixil,

All the reason to create your cards.

Also, let me know if you ever find a good website that sells a lot of Fine Art.

This art related topic can be huge here we would have to focus. We both have nature added to our art if I understand you correctly. My 3D is sourced around beach finds and I augment driftwood in different ways. Also make arrangements with the beach finds in glass vases with added dry flowers. I'm a flower thief in the spring and a seed thief in the fall. A gardener for years.

Where do these "n" come from in my postings?
aknan
Apr 29, 2020
She was and is, pixi. Some of her acrylics have gone for $10, 000, all on commission. I have 5 of her paintings, either purchased or gifted to me back in the 80s, but certainly can't afford any more! She does a lot with palette knife, too. At the moment, she does interior design staging for a realtor who works for Sotheby's and also has some private clients. I'm just amazed at all she can do - including cook!

Arlenez, the "n" seems to be a spacer of some kind - it isn't in your sent post. I've had the same thing happen to me.

If you don't let the application automatically decide to start the next line and you hit enter it prints an "n". It comes from using a typewriter. I often forget to let the application make the decision.

Thanks, pixi - I didn't know that.

Aknan, Were you talking about our pixipixil when you mentioned selling art for $10, 000. I've always wanted to talk about this issue with an artist who gets a high dollar return for their work. There is an assumption about the value of the art work when it is high priced.

Pixixpixil, See my comment to aknan.

You're welcome, aknan. It really confused me why that happened. I thought it was something with my computer until I noticed it was after I'd hit enter.

These are nice but to crowded for me. I am a country boy

That's pretty much the way it is for me, too, Jas--only I'm a country lady. What I do like about the urban areas is that they have the best art museums, botanical gardens, and symphony orchestras. I need the forests and streams, though.

I've lived in a city all my life but my heart and soul is in the North Carolina mountains.

Same here jas6415. My wife and I live in a small town. We love to visit the city, but we love living in our small country town.

I've lived in medium size cities 30, 000 to 100, 000 and country. Love elbow room and views in country. E Tennessee is my dream area around Greenville.

I have never lived in a city only in small towns or in the country. I live in a very rural setting and love it.

I assume that these colorful buildings are in France. Wonder if they are sitting on a canal or by a river? Kind of wish I had vacationed in Europe more extensively.
