Maybe its just another cheap way to get your attention I’ll admit, but I have to do something to keep you engaged. In this blog I want to discuss my original acrylic paintings. To start off, the one question I get asked a lot is “How Long Did It Take to Paint That?”
My paintings take weeks, if not months to complete!
As I have shared in earlier posts, painting for me is a process. From field research to original design concept to completion can be a difficult, lengthy, task. In fact, I still have some paintings that are incomplete and have been for some years. Its not that I abandoned the painting or didn’t like it, it’s just that sometimes artists can get stuck just like novelists suffering from writer’s block. The goal is for inspiration to take hold once again to complete the piece. It is because of this investment of time, thought, and toil that original paintings command a high price. For the serious collector and fan of my artwork however it can have many benefits. Below are a few.
Over the past year, I’ve restructured my business so that I could concentrate on what I do best….. PAINT! I am really seeing the benefit of those changes. In the
coming year I plan to become more engaged in entering competitions such as duck stamp competitions among others. My productivity has increased and I now have more time to concentrate on different landscapes and subjects. One immediate benefit is that I have a greater inventory of original paintings for sale. You can see many of these pieces scattered throughout this blog and if you have a genuine interest in purchasing an original painting visit the >>Originals for Sale Page<< and contact us.
Finally, if you own an original Anthony J. Padgett painting, I want to hear from you. Over the last 30 years, I have sold many originals and as time wears on, faces, names, and paintings begin to blur. I want to reconnect with owners and collectors of my artwork. Please email me by visiting my >>Contact Us Page<< and include the following.
If you don’t remember the name of the painting, just take a snapshot of it and email to firstname.lastname@example.org
