Almost September!

Quite happy to know that it's September tomorrow. September brings new beginnings after a slow summer. I did manage to get some of my paintings into a place called "Bohemia Cafe" that is in the downtown area. It was something I have been wanting to do for awhile. I will show the two new paintings here that I brought in to the Cafe. I have thought a lot about trying to do only portraits, but have decided that it's something that I will do only for friends and family. Portraits are very special..and are very difficult to do so that you know who that person is. Whether this is the right way or wrong way to look at it is not anything I am really concerned with. I have to go with my gut feelings on this. My focus has therefore changed to doing abstracts, which has always been my favourite. The artists I love the most are abstract artists, so I really want to try and get to the point where my abstracts are worthy of being in other people's homes. I am taking an abstract painting class in September along with another Drawing class that is required for my Fine Arts Certificate.
