Finally I finished the Apple Tree. I had absolutely no plan as I started this one, but I like how it turned out.
Originally I wanted to sell it on Ebay, but after I took a closer look at the german ebay market I´m not sure anymore. It seems people in germany are not really interested to buy any paintings on Ebay, unless the artist has a name. By checking the finished auctions I was bummed to see that some really stunning paintings of unknown hobby artists, WAY WAY WAY better than mine, went over the table for less than 20 €.
Maybe I should think about an Etsy Shop.
A couple of minutes ago I varnished all paintings of this week and different to the acrylics - dude, this stuff stinks! I bought another varnish this time, cause the one I use to take was sold. It was more expensive like the one I use to buy, but it makes me believe I spent the extra dollars for some extra stench, lol :D
I hope the smell will fade away when it´s dried and I put this varnish-brand on my "Never buy again" list.
The last photo I took while the painting was still in progress. I know many of you are cat-lovers and thought this makes you smile. Bruno, our youngest (and most cheeky) thinks, whenever I´m taking the camera in my hands it´s time for him to pose :)
Hope you are all in good spirits and wish you all a fabulous weekend!
