Two Deer SOLD

OK, I'm going to quit bragging but after so much famine, I was exulting in the feast. I hope this may give hope to other painters who are going through a dry time.

I love playing with molding paste, stamps and texture. The horizontal strips at the bottom are left over from another project and are a bit more textured in real life. The deer are our little brother and sister from the backyard.

Our provincial government has pretty much cut ALL funding to all art revenues as if the creative people aren't already suffering from the recession. I find this a very short-sighted view when statistics have backed up the fact that the arts generates economic spending! If we lose our local art councils because they cannot afford to stay open, where will the emerging artists (like me) be able to show their work and move their way up through the creative ladder? Sigh.

Not being a seller of art, or even one who has ever shown a piece outside of my blog, I really don't have any ideas, Paula. I do know that many school systems in the States have cut art classes (and music) from their school curriculum. I think that is a lousy shame and a really sad statement of our times.

Still, I am so happy that you've had a glut of sales of late! All wonderful pieces and this one is no exception. I love the ribbons on the bottom, the palette is lovely!
