Return Trip

8x10 inches - Acrylic on canvas panel

Happy Halloween!   I don't think pumpkin carving is my thing, but with some teamwork we got it done.

Sleepy Beach

5x7 inches - Acrylic on canvas panel

Sometimes I ask my 5-year-old for artistic criticism.  He is usually overly nice.  My real insight comes from asking him what I painted.  Today he said, "Nice. I like the clouds, water, and grass..." So yes, there was too much green in my sand initially.  I worked on it a little more until he could agree it was a beach.

Through the Gray

Acrylic on canvas panel - 6x6 inches

We've had several overcast days here.  At least it seems that way. And although I do like to see the sun, there's something nice about a gray day too.  They are usually good days for being productive too.  (Not that I am productive every time it's overcast... Ha!)

I've been thinking I should do more in the way of promoting my paintings. I haven't been doing much other than posting occasionally to Google+, which has helped, but I feel like I am behind on all the social media stuff.  I was thinking I might try Instagram first.  If anyone is interested in following me my username is sbauerart.  I can currently count my followers on one hand, but if I get that number up I'd like to do giveaways and whatever else I can think of... to shamelessly promote myself...
