Three 22" x 28" canvases

Spring Sunrise V

Today's work includes two new originals from my signature series Oriental Blossoms and Spring Sunrise. The Blossoms series has been doing well for me, and Spring Sunrise V has a sister painting that I did as a commission for a client.

Tip of the Day
Archive photos of your work. Regardless of the medium you work in, and whether you have a web site, blog, or use a web site for hosting your portfolio, keep copies of the photos of your work. This is your real portfolio. Your resume in the art world. If you work in 2D media you may want to consider investing in a digital camera that captures images in the RAW format, which is supposed to render true colors. You can convert these to high resolution TIFF images, which you can use for print reproductions of your work.

Quote of the Day
"Internal and external are ultimately one. When you no longer perceive the world as hostile, there is no more fear, and when there is no more fear, you think, speak and act differently. Love and compassion arise, and they affect the world." --Eckhart Tolle
