Tree of Happiness; Art of the Week

For this weeks ‘Art of the Week’ I decided to chose the first real piece of Artwork I ever sold. This means, a piece of Artwork that I sold to a total stranger! I sold this piece of artwork the beginning of March 2011 on ArtGallery.co.uk. I was over the moon that someone wanted to put a piece of my original work on their wall, and it boosted my confidence so much I decided to make my facebook page of Cally’s Creations. You could say it is thanks to selling this piece that I am where I am today.
Cally’s Creations has now been up and running for a year. Although I still have a long way to go with building my Art business, I am proud of how much I have achieved in such a small space of time. This piece of artwork ~ Tree of Happiness, will always remind me of this!

It was before I started texturing canvases. I have layered on pastel colours of acrylic and emulsion and glitter, painted a silhouette of a tree and decorated it with buttons.

I am hoping to do some similar pieces for my Etsy shop real soon!

The Flowers Talk at Night; Art of the Week

For Art of the Week this week I have chosen a sold painting ‘The Flowers Talk at Night.’ It is 12×12 inches and painted on canvas. This particular painting was not textured with paper, only the flowers were textured using modelling paste.

I had not had this painting a week before it was snapped up and sold for a present for Christmas. I was glad that people saw my artwork good enough to give as gifts, and the person who received the painting was very happy with it!

It was a different design and style that I had tried just before the New Year and many people on my Facebook page loved it . I also sold a similar piece through ArtGallery.co.uk that I did in the same week! It’s a technique and style I hope to improve and use for future paintings to come. I have a couple called Midnight Blooms and Pretty Pink Haze that are similar.
