Judy Moses - Fine Art

Judy Moses - Fine Art

Uploaded some additional photos today to Fine Art America.  Black Friday and I probably should be shopping for Christmas but I am home still nursing my shoulder.  Trying to paint a little and clean up my work area...that's a job!  Yesterday I gave my original Santa portrait to my nephew.  He is a Santa collector.  Apparently, he really liked the portrait and so did everyone else.  It really makes you feel good to do something for someone else who appreciates what you do.  I am working on another Santa portrait that I might display at Charlotte Metrolina above Kathy's fireplace.  I would certainly like to sell some of my paintings so I need to keep reading and working on how to promote my art.

I have more paintings that I probably should give away.  Maybe I will work on some and get ready for Christmas.  I need to work on Christmas Cards as I have made those for years.  Lots of things to do before the holidays.   So much to do, so little time.

Working on my Art...Slowly

Since my surgery, I have made good progress toward recovery according to the doctor and PT.  Unfortunately, it is a long road to full recovery, about 12 weeks.  I have been working in both oil and acrylic...trying to paint with left hand.

Over the last couple of weeks, I have worked on a portrait of a beautiful brown horse.  I really know very little about horses, except they are beautiful creatures.  The portrait that I did is from a photo that was taken by an internet friend.  I think that the portrait is coming along nicely however, it still needs some work.  Still needs some highlights and work on the mane.  So far, I feel good about what I have created in oils.  I would like to get some commissions to paint.

I have also painted, all in oils, portraits of a brown Labrador (our grand dog), cocker spaniel, German Shepard, and  still working on a long haired dog.  I originally painted the cocker spaniel in acrylics but did not like the result so I repainted in oils.  I like the look much better. As I look at each portrait, I can see that each one needs some work...we are our own worst critic but that is how we improve our work.  I posted photos of each portrait to Facebook.

In December, I have scheduled an acrylic landscape class at Michaels.   I also worked on a sample for that class.

Maybe I will have time to work on these again today.
