For a while I have been thinking of a wolf painting that I might look good on a 11 by 14 inch canvas. Now that the site has traffic statistics I can see that my Celtic Wolf got the most looks. I like that one but it could be soo much better. The pic itself looks washed out in the middle area so I will see about getting a better pic to replace that. I have a vision of a pack of wolves on a moonlit night. It will be a dreamlike image with wolves running down one side of the canvas an making like a waterfall of wolves. I haven't decided if I will make the wolves realistic in color or play it up a bit. Something I'll have to sketch on. I suppose wolves are still popular paintings. I sold one a few years back. That was done in more realistic colors and it was pretty good. The lady who bought it from me said her mother loved it, it was a birthday present, and her mother loved wolves. That's nice, giving a painting for a present, something different from the average gifts on the market. I'm hoping to have a line of smaller paintings for sale at $30 and have a larger painting sold for more depending on how it turns out. My greatest dream is to do my art for a living, I'll need to get my own computer, scanner, digital camera someday. I'm hoping to get new brushes maybe next month. I'm going to start saving for a decent easel. I have a good table one but my floor one is a ricketty wooden deal from Wal-Mart. It's hard to paint when any minuted the whole thing might come crashing down. The problem is it slides on the kitchen floor, a slippery wood laminated. Oh to afford a house with a place to call an art room would be nice. I make do with what I have very well, I have to. Either that or quit, and THAT'S not ever going to happen.
