A blog about my thoughts and my love of artwork as it develops. It reflects some of the basic steps that I go through to achieve the artwork which is eventually presented to Spicher and Co, an innovative design firm that manufactures artwork for the trade. The why, what, how, and where are a few of the questions that I attempt to answer as I blog away! This is a tiny window into the life of a painter, and my hope is that my love for life shines through in the objects that I work to create.

Kolene Spicher Mermaid Winter Scene - Part 3
Getting Closer to completion!
I added a lot more of my fish people and sailors! I am not quite finished but thought it would be fun to blog about what I did so far. It's been a busy week with the holidays. I was hoping to have this completed but it will need to wait till sometime next week!
I like the red but it's a bit garish for my taste
One of the things that I will be doing next week is toning the red down. It's just too bright for my liking. I have been looking at it for a few days now and think it needs a little less vibrancy. :)
What do you think? Maybe even a different color. Maybe it's too Christmas?? Here it is in the frame! there was a lot of work that has gone into this. If the decorator cannot use it, I will let you know. Maybe it will be available or maybe I will keep it till my next show and enjoy it for some months ahead!
Thanks for looking and happy Thanksgiving and Christmas to you and yours!
