Along the Shore
In my other blog I tell the tale of my painting seascapes on stones found on the beach. This painting would be one similar to some such painting. I used to visit this beach that had a large collection of large flat stones ideal for painting on. When these paintings dried a fast drying spray of varnish made the stones look wet and brought out all the beautiful colours. I ended up with a nice little miniature painting on a lovely coloured stone that would be ideal as a paperweight.
These were then deposited back on the beach among the stones and I would sit back and enjoy a flask of coffee and watch the reactions when somebody found it. I often had the pleasure of hearing some nice comments made about the artwork. I cannot remember any of these little paintings being left on the beach.
This painting, (sorry if it is not as clear as it could be) was painted using acrylic paint. It was painted on a canvas measuring 40” x 20”.
Once I had started painting I thought that I should have a website. My first website I built myself. I then had to get a company to host it and post in online. The technician who helped me to do this looked through the site I had built and on that first day contacted me offering to purchase this painting. I can remember the feeling of joy I got at this my first online sale.
