Diane Mannion, GODIVA, 3.5x2.5" oil on linen/mounted, 2014 Snippet #1
HAPPY NEW PAINTING YEAR NEWS!
Warm wishes for the best year ever to all my friends and family.
Once again, (third time!) I made the commitment to paint 30 Paintings in 30 Days along with Leslie Saeta's group in January. But since that promise, lots of opportunities have come up... therefore, I'll paint a much smaller, 3.5 x2.5" or Artist Trading Card size.
Also known as ACEO (Artist Card Edition and Original), is an art form collected around the world. My 2013 Snippets Series almost sold out (gifted a few) across the US, Canada, Europe, and even Russia.
All January 30/30 Snippets will be auctioned through Dailypaintworks with bidding starting at 50 and free shipping.
Great way to use up my world's most expensive linen scraps. It's also a terrific way to practice painting techniques, experiment, slow down and fiddle, or paint faster. These small paintings are like practicing dance steps or keys on the piano... an artist's workout session.
I know I'm a day ahead here, but my work doesn't show up in the online galleries until tomorrow.
Warning... More horn tooting:
*Two of my paintings have been accepted into the Punta Gorda National Show.
*And another into the Women Painters of the Southeast Show.
*My painting, Rachal's Five, which won the Bowles Award for Outstanding Portraiture, Punta Gorda VAC, Greatest Hits show... also won the PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD!
HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY
