Most of the paintings for the last 15 years are sizes 5×5 to 6×8 inch. Each one created for the purpose of daily painting, my own practice as an artist. Some I treasure and frame for my own enjoyment.
Have you ever wondered what I do with all those little watercolor paintings I paint? Well, this is a blog about the Scope of Work and I how created a business specifically with 100’s, maybe even 1,000’s of small paintings.
I wrote a book, Available on Amazon, or on my Etsy Store, full of my small paintings, to be read out loud to children telling about how art helped me learn to read when I was 12 years old. Because of what I learn with my art, I have a great deal of confidence that I can learn so daily I kick that learning disability away and keep on keeping on. This is actually a tool the Holy Spirit gave me to live the abundant life God has for me. John 10:10.
I created a mural for Cedar Park Regional Hospital Children’s Wing Playroom. I used small paintings to create the wallpaper for this 20 ft x 8 ft wallpaper.
Some I make patterns for Keep The White Space®, learn how to paint with watercolor paint and a water brush classes. Patterns are included in the cost of a class & they may be purchased $1.00 each, downloaded free from www.patreon.com/ktws & a Keep The White Space® Watercoloring Book, purchase from Keepthewhitespace.etsy.com $25.00

The first 25 or 30 years of my career as an artist I primarily shared my oil paintings and I taught beginners to paint with oil paint.
And then my newest customer and opportunity is with a company called S2S Warehouse. They have 3 stores Waco, Texas, Temple, Texas and Cedar Park, Texas. I can’t wait to see how this develops. No images available yet. I will update as soon as I have something to show you.
