Painting for Charity

By Cammy Davis on

Today I’m working on a painting for a charity. I have a friend who is really involved in Relay for Life, so I started this painting to donate. I also joined a new site today. It’s a site where artists can upload their artwork and sell prints. I’m interested to find out how it works. …

EtsyRAIN

By Cammy Davis on

I joined Team EtsyRain today and am really excited about the opportunity to meet other artists in the Puget Sound area. The meetings made me smile….because, they sound so similar to the girlpods I’ve done with my friends for years. And I LOVE the girlpods. A bunch of us get together and do crafts and …

Clocks continued

By Cammy Davis on

I continued working on clocks today, but felt a little discouraged when I searched etsy to see what prices people were using for clocks. I don’t know how they do it. I hope when I list them on my etsy site, people will see the design and creative value of having one in their home.

Tree Painting is Finished

By Cammy Davis on

I did not finish the goals I set for myself today, so I am planning to work on them again tomorrow. However, I did finish the yellow ochre and dark umber tree painting I have been working on. I took my first photos with the new tripod. It’s definitely improved the quality, but I think …

Rendering Style

By Cammy Davis on

Today I worked on a painting of a tree. I want the painting to have a morose, lonely feel. I have many branches to go. I think the looser I get with paint strokes, such as the background, the more I like it. I took a color rendering class last quarter. I played around with …
