Living on Rainbows ~ SOLD

“Lots of people like rainbows.
Children make wishes on them,
artists paint them and dreamers chase them,
but the Aquarian lives on one."
~ Linda Goodman
Linda Goodman's Sun Signs

The Age of Aquarius an age that the world has just entered,
 believed by some to signal a period of peace and harmony.

Guess what my sign is!
No wonder I've lived my life dreaming and painting rainbows.

I've been lying awake nights trying to decide what to paint at my demo in NYC in a couple of weeks. (500 people are expected in the store on the first day - when I'll be there.) I keep hearing reassuring advice in my head from my various painting mentors; "Paint what you know, keep it simple, practice painting what you plan to paint, have a plan. Don't worry, even if you don't think it turned out, they will think it did."

So far, my plan is to do 2 or 3 paintings (or parts of paintings) during my two hour slot demonstrating a few different techniques.  I painted this "Rainbow Feather on Yupo Paper" as a demo possibility, showing a fun and forgiving, direct approach. It was done with no preliminary pencil lines. My reference was an ink jet print out of one I did a couple of years ago on 140 lb cold-press rag paper. It took me less than an hour to paint. Do you think it would be a suitable subject to use?

I'd appreciate any feedback, advice or opinions on my upcoming demo
from fellow artists or anyone who'd be generous enough to offer some.
