Today I delivered three of the little 4 x 6" watercolor paintings of the Ghost Palms to my neighbor who owns the vacation rentals.  They will be displayed on little easels with my brochure.  Visitors love to take home local art that is small and lighty to pack.


I plan on making large framed "Ghost Palms" to hang in each house so that the little ones will be more likely to be bought by the renters.  The owner really likes them and says if her renters meet me, they will surely buy the paintings. 

It's a start.

Oh, I have three commissions to do - two 8 x 10 watercolors of scenes on Cape Cod and one drawing of a "mystical place" like one would see in Lord of the Rings.  My friend saw my drawing on Nolan's Misty Forest and asked me to do something similar for her Christmas cards.  She also asked if she could keep the Misty Forest drawing because it's the kind of art work she likes.

I'm excited.

aloha
