What do you do with all the paintings?

I loved receiving this question from Louise in the UK:

What do you do with all the paintings!  If you paint something every day for 30 days that’s a lot of art!

If you’ve ever wondered the same thing, here’s my reply:

Hi Louise, great question!

 

I keep many of my collections, displaying them in my studio and rotating the displays. Many of them are in sketchbooks though and will never be displayed – they’re a record of how and what I wanted to sketch, on that day, at that time – they’re exercises, just like going for a jog, or doing some sit ups – that contribute to my Art Fitness.

 

Most of my daily paintings are small, so won’t fill a room. Some of my students gift or sell their work, or paint cards and envelopes and stay in touch with friends. The most important thing is to create for yourself. That’s where the magic happens. 🙂

 

Let me know how you go!

About Anna Battle

I’m an artist, guide, mother and a very handy Art Friend! 

My life’s mission is to share the joy of drawing and painting.

In 2011 I started offering in-studio guided Paint Alongs, and my first online course, 15 Flowers, went live in 2015.

In 2016 my book, Painting Party, was published (it’s still available on Amazon).

I now offer online Paint Alongs and workshops so that you can reconnect to the creativity inside you. Gift yourself the time to paint, and the guidance you need to improve your skills and your confidence. 

I invite you to join me and see the world through the eyes of an artist!

If not now, when?
