This must change, my colleague says. If we are to do an art show together, we need smaller, more affordable paintings. Typically, paintings are priced by the square inch (mine are $1.50/square inch), so the smaller, the less expensive.
I have a lot of high-end wood scraps lying around from various house projects. Since returning from Scotland, I've been sanding and priming them.
To my surprise, when working with irregular sizes, I seem to get more whimsical. These paintings have been quick and fun to make. I'm hooked!
