Hi there! I wanted to share my latest completed painting. I need to say first off that I have had some technical difficulties with this post. I am still learning how to use WordPress, as I am still a newbie, so I apologize. I wanted ALL of these pictures to be in a descending order; however, for some reason I had ‘issues’ with this particular post and there are two different formats for my pictures.
I have been working on this piece for several days and just finished it very early this morning. As I began….starting with a sketch…I took progression photographs so you could join me on the journey of this piece. I always find it fascinating to begin with a void…a white, blank canvas…and then progress systematically from sketch to final work. Often, I will complete a painting and pause to ask myself, “How did I get here?” It is perplexing and sometimes strange to me that I can produce any scene at all. I wonder if many other self taught artists feel the same way sometimes? If you are self taught, perhaps you want to share your experience regarding this ‘phenomenon’ with me? I would love it if you did. When I have photos, such as I present below (and above), it provides me with the answers that sometimes evade me. It is interesting (to me at least) and helpful to see the steps that I took in order to reach what I view as a ‘finished’ painting. I hope you enjoy the journey.
Have a super Weekend,

Hello fellow bloggers. I have not posted in awhile and I am sorry about that. For some strange reason I have been rather scattered and discombobulated of late. I do not know why; however, I am trying to get back on track. Regular blogging and sharing is good for my soul and helps further my creative energy. You see, even my paintings are somewhat random in their scope and appearance. I have my mind and goals on something that could potentially be an amazing experience and event and perhaps that is why I am not super-focused. I am only in the initial stages of brainstorming and planning…but I think I may have something here. Time will tell. I am not ready to reveal my plans; however, they have to do with curating, art, and someone famous. You will have to wait and see. The great news is that I sold another painting…my largest to date and I am beyond thrilled. My client lives in Connecticut and she saw the painting on my website. I had it hanging in a local San Francisco couture baby clothes boutique. It was great exposure for me but Ms. Connecticut bought it before someone else got their hands on it.
Below is a random posting of some of my recent little paintings and photographs….scattered though they may be, I am happy with the way they turned out. Let’s just say I have been in a bit of a floral state of mind.
And if you get a moment I would love it if you checked out my relatively new website, if you haven’t already: www.FairesFineArt.com.
Peace and love,
