Here’s the latest progress on my new painting. I’m really enjoying the colours on this one. (I think I said that on my last painting too ) I think one more weekend and I will be finished. I’d better get to work on the sketch for my commission – yikes!
I finally finished getting the print file sorted out for Summer Morning. As my biggest painting ever, the digital file gave me some problems (Mostly file size and rendering time.)
But it’s finally done and I’m very pleased with the print. I have the signed prints available at budanart.com and my etsy shop, and I will make some chunkies over the next little while.
Hubby has made me a google map showing many of the places in the world where my prints and paintings have been sent. It’s really cool to see them all on the map like that We don’t have everyone in there yet, we’re starting from the present and working back.
Note: It is just calculated on the city – the street address and zip or postal codes have been stripped out – so we aren’t pinpointing anyone’s exact address.

Here’s my latest progress. I got quite a bit done this weekend. I love the way the cool blues and purples of the snow are offset by the bright oranges and yellows of the sunlight through the trees.
Off to a good start. I had the sketch on the panel and ready to go by Saturday night so I was able to get some painting done Sunday.
I’m starting a new 12 x 16! I have a commission to do but the sketch isn’t finished yet, so I’m doing this one in the interim.
I held back a 5 x 7 painting that I made last week so that I could show it first in my newsletter. I got my newsletter ready, listed the painting on etsy and grabbed the link so I could add it to my newsletter. Sent out the newsletter and within 10 minutes the painting was gone! Not quite what I was expecting but lots of fun nonetheless
I think I will try to do that again and see what happens. I can only do it with 5 x 7’s though because I want to blog my progress on larger paintings. Hopefully this weekend I will have a new sketch on panel ready to show. I have a 16 x 20 commission but I’m not ready to start it yet so I will do a smaller painting first.
If you didn’t know, by day I’m a mild-mannered graphic designer.
I’m a member of the Registered Graphic Designers of Ontario and they have chosen me for their RGD at Work feature on their website. How cool is that?
I get some very nice homepage exposure and I get to show some of the graphic design work I’ve been doing lately. All-in-all very exciting!
