This painting is one of three I painted for a fundraising event and sale, Art & Soul. The requirement was that it be square. While I have painted a 6×6″ series of sea turtles, this may be the start of a series of larger ones.
I have been prompted to paint larger paintings more than once but I like to think there is a method to my madness of painting smaller. Because I sell at outdoor shows, and have just gotten my feet wet and by no means an expert at selling, I like to give potential customers variety. And many say they have no wall space.
All that being said, larger paintings need to be an option as well. Again, because of outdoor shows, all my inventory needs to be framed. And with that comes storage issues, transport issues, etc. As a result, I am cognizant of all this when I set out to paint.
But change happens!
