Ok here's my most recent 16x20 acrylic painting of an orange sun and sunset. It started out looking like a fire which was painted with a large putty knife. I think it is because I had been affected by the Carr fire in Redding where we used to live. Some of our friends were affected and a number of people we know lost their homes. However I didn't feel to leave the painting looking like a fire so I added lighter pastel colors and some white glazing. It still needed the bright orange sun and now I am much more comfortable with it.
Blooper! Or do you call it that on a website blog? Ok I tried to make a link on the words "acrylic painting of an orange sun and sunset" but somehow the link linked the whole paragraph. I am hoping to learn to do this better next time but don't know how to change it yet as I am still learning.
I hope you enjoyed this painting. It is in my shop if you are ever interested in purchasing it or any of my other wall art and paintings for sale. Most are the original paintings but there are also some prints. I also have prints and other items for sale on Fine Art America.
Welcome to my art blog! My name is Jane Schleppenbach. I would like to share with you and encourage you in your own creativity as I share my journey with you. I have taken many college art classes and also learn from videos, magazines and my own experimentation. Hopefully, we can share each other's experiences in art and creativity for mutual encouragement. I have been painting for many years and have sold a lot of my work online, at art fairs and to private parties across the US and some overseas but am always open to positive improvement and love to explore new areas. I am really looking forward to interact with you here and get to know you. Feel free to comment!
