The Pandemic

The pandemic has affected people’s lives around the world. We just got back from a long trip and immediately had to shelter in place. Fortunately, we have a back garden and a deck where we can watch birds and other creatures. We have a lot of free time to do what we enjoy, so besides watching movies, I started working on my watercolor painting skills or lack thereof. Below are a few pieces which I deemed decent enough to show.

Lady with Cigar

Why I’ve stopped painting!

My paint brushes stored

I haven’t been painting for more than two years now.  It has nothing to do with the lack of desire or inspiration, but more with practical reasons.  My paintings are piling up and I haven’t sold a painting for a while.  Why, you ask?  Besides actually creating art, an artist has to work hard to sell.  Because I simply don’t have the talent for salesmanship, I resort to posting my art on social media like Facebook and Instagram, and sites like ArtPal.  How effective these are remains to be seen.   So, until Lady Luck strikes or a strong wave of inspiration engulfs me, I won’t be painting anytime soon.
