Sharon:  I like your Kiwi.  The little corrections made a nice contrast to the center. Good luck with your show.  I have sold 5 of my little paintings at the gift show.  :yippee: :yippee:

 :thankyou: Val:  I found people will buy a small painting for a place that nothing bigger will fit.  I will continue to paint more small paintings.

Kathy, I think I am going to cut some small papers, I start out sketching small.... but it just seems to keep growing every time I make a small correction!  :doh:    :2funny:

Val:  I tear my paper first to keep me in bounds.  If you tear the paper you can dry mount it and have a nice edge on all sides.  Try it.

Thanks, Kathy - and mazel tov on the 5 sales!!! I love the idea of tearing the paper - I'll have to try it sometime.

This last show I sold 4 paintings. Not as good as I usually do. But the good news is I now have 5 smaller paintings in inventory for a gallery show I'm participating in during December - so there was no need to try to create more too quickly!

Val - I bet even your paintings are larger than life, just like your personality!
Cheers,
Sharon

Kathy and Sharon,

What do you mean by "tearing" the paper?  Can you show an image of one torn please?

Mea:  All you have to do is size the paper to what size you want.  Then I take a ruler and a awl or a stylus and score the paper.  Then I fold it back and forth until it is very flexible then tear.  It makes a rough shred not a clean cut.  Try it with some scrap paper.  You can do all four sides.
