Ten More Paintings

Hi all y’all!

I have completed twenty paintings for the Children’s Hospital!

The process of these ten paintings (11-20) have been a balance between what I want to paint and what I think the committee will like. I felt pretty sure of myself while painting the first 10. Then, some of the paintings were returned. That had never happened to me before. Originally, I was asked to paint diverse people and happy paintings. When the paintings were returned, I was asked to change the skin color on all of the children that I painted to rainbow colors. I tried to do this to make everyone happy. I changed some of the paintings, but it wasn’t feeling like my art.

I am feeling a little insecure and that makes it harder to paint. For the last 10, I need to paint what I want within the new parameters and not stress about it. So far, I painted a shotgun house and am working on a rainbow colored tween. I started to miss painting faces so much.

Here are 8 of the next ten. I accidentally erased Einstein Alpaca and The Bee. I especially liked the alpaca.

The manatee is my favorite! 

 

Warmest Regards,

  1. Paint what you love, Nancy. Tastes are not the same, as you know. In NOLA? I’m surprised MH

    1. Well you are just hitting it bigger time ! And the critics come out. Believe in your own instincts. Maybe this isn’t your venue. Don’t be discouraged. Paint what you know!!
      By the way, is your “dog with heart nose” available? 🙂
