Whales and Ships and Icebergs



Sometimes when you have multiple, simultaneous deadlines looming, when you feel like you're just not making any visible, satisfying progress anywhere, it's necessary to push all those projects to one side and throw yourself into an extra-curricular exercise. In this case, because I was having trouble finishing a single painting, I decided to make 50 paintings. Possibly in honor of Moby Dick's birthday. I'm thinking I might make them into teatowels, or wrapping paper.

Could you put this up on Society 6, perhaps? I would buy this loveliness in an instant for a Moby Dick, sea-loving friend!

I love this! Would love them all together on one large piece of paper to frame and put on my wall. If you put it in your etsy shop- I will purchase it!

These are beautiful and would be perfect on a tea towel.
Isn't funny that artists often do their best works when they are meant to be doing something else !.

Lovely <3
This also makes me think I may be onto something - having just done a LOT of other things than what I was s'posed to do. Happens a lot before I start the actual work - I'm starting to really believe it's part of the process and that I'm not just lazy or a coward.

Each segment and number contributes to different points, depending on where your dart lands. However, filling holes in walls after a game of darts is not fun. First of all, you will need batteries and lots and lots of them for it to work.
