After Years - My First Painting Completed - September 12, 2013

Real Estate Agent with Platinum Realty 1999090686

After years, I have finally completed a small painting.  Acrylic on masonite board.  8 x 10.

A friend of mine and artist, Christopher Schulte, spearheads the Will Flores Fund (  A group of artists are donating works for Stillness in Motion, an annual exhibit where proceeds benefit local community organizations.  The opening reception is Sunday, Sept 22, 2-5 pm.  The deadline to have works in is this Saturday.  

I have promised Christopher for a year I was going to begin painting again. I haven't really turned out anything for probably 15 years.  My degree in Fine Art wasn't doing me much good...  

I committed to at least one painting for the exhibit.  This week finally arrived, and I decided I better get busy.  I don't know why I procrastinated for so long.  I think it's fear that I wouldn't be any good, or that it would take too much time away from my Realtor responsibilities.  

Since I've finally started, I do believe I will keep going.  It was an enjoyable process...

Hi, Tim -- beautiful!  It reminds me of the 'pointillism' of the post-impressionist Georges Seurat.

Keep at it and let your talent blossom.  Best -- Eric
