It's been seven months since I posted something. Life is full of surprises. One of the many surprises that deterred me from blogging was moving back to Sta. Clarita last February.
Title: "Pearl Of The Orient"
Size: 12" x 14"
Medium: Oil On Canvas
"YOU DON"T DO ART FOR MONEY. THAT'S THE NUMBER ONE THING. AND NUMBER TWO IS, YOU DO IT BECAUSE YOU LOVE IT."
NEW HOME FOR "THE WAVES": In the 80's, when we moved to Valencia, in Sta. Clarita Valley, we transferred this oil painting to our new home. It fitted beautifully in our large entry wall. We also hanged the Modern Painting#1 on the right side. When we moved to another brand new home at The Oaks in 1989, I fall in love w/ the Southwest theme & cactus, so I changed our home decors. I preferred colors like peach & lime or coral & jade. I changed many oil paintings to match our SW theme and color. Although I majored in editorial & advertising design, with no interior design background, I had the guts to decorate our home by myself. I became the interior decorator of our house and just followed my instincts.
What happened to "The Waves?" I no longer have these oil paintings. Only photos reminded me of them. I remember, that I re-painted over the "Waves." I experimented w/ other subjects and passed on the oil paintings to others, to enjoy. I wished I had kept those experimental oil paintings, so I could compare my progress in painting. Like the waves of the ocean that came and left, so was my other paintings.
