#151 Red Tulips

Red Tulips painting by Whitney Heavey, Cape Cod artist
2015 Daily Painting #1, Red Tulips by Whitney Heavey
I guess I'm still in holiday mode with the red and green tulips, but they are just such a pretty pop of color this time of year!  Happy New Year everyone!  I hope you follow along as I embark on another #30paintingsin30days challenge!  I'm really excited to start the year painting everyday!  To bid on this painting click here.

2014 Year in Review

artist whitney heavey yearly review 2014 cape cod landscape painter
whitneyheavey.com 2014 A few of the highlights
I looked back at what I wrote last year at this time, and I am happy with how I handled the list...with the number one goal being "paint more".  Of course, there is significant room to grow and learn in the year ahead.

Some highlights from this year
  • I did paint more...LOTS more
  • My show in February at On The Mat Yoga in Concord got me starting the year off with tons of painting time (deadlines are good for that).  Fortunately, my car handled the snow and I was able to get to my studio on days when, in the past, my old minivan would have never made it.  
  • Several commissions in the Spring.
  • I managed to paint more in the summer despite kids' schedule...though there is LOTS of room for improvement and I have ideas for summer 2015 (see upcoming post: "2015 Looking Ahead")
  • October was a fun* month (*loose use of the word "fun")with my #30paintingsin30days challenge.  It got me painting everyday, often at home instead of my studio.  I managed to link up with a daily painting auction website www.dailypaintworks.com and was fortunate enough to sell most of these daily paintings through this new source.  
  • I participated in three holiday sales which definitely helped with the cash flow at a normally slow time for larger work sales.
  • I finally managed to tackle some things that have been on my list for awhile: getting a Square account, hiring a bookkeeper, opening an online store on my website.
  • I did a demo at Melrose Arts Association
  • By the seat of my pants I ran a 12 day give away at the holidays to thank my FB fans and collectors. 
  • I finally ventured into the world of printing art into calendars and cards and found a great local printer to help me with the cards (Ink Etc in Acton).
Some things I learned:
  • Even if I'm having fun, spreading myself too thin doesn't really work in terms of family and getting time for my larger paintings 
  • Painting daily creates a great environment for stretching and growing (just need to figure out how to limit the time these little ones take so I can get to the big work)
  • Time management and how I schedule my day are super important in terms of productivity
  • Facebook is a great marketing tool
  • doing things that scare me is good (ie #30paintingsin30days)
  • Time moves fast (at a blur really) when you love what you do.
  • I need to set time limits when it comes to work on the computer (blogs, image management, research, marketing, website, social media, etc) or you will never get to the painting. 
  • Nothing can be perfect...but just keep moving forward and most importantly, KEEP PAINTING! 
Happy New Year!
FYI: My next #30Paintingsin30Days starts TOMORROW!

12 Days of Christmas Give Away!

Gratitude:
I got the 12 Day Art Give Away idea from Leslie Saeta's Blog Talk Radio show, Artist Helping Artists.  It's very inspiring show both in terms of making art and the business side of art.  Anyways, I wanted to give a shout out to her for the idea!  Thanks Leslie!

The purpose of this 12 Day Give Away is to say THANK YOU to my social media friends and followers for the positive impact you have had on my art business! 

The PLAN:
Everyday for 12 days (hopefully in a row), I will post on Facebook a little "contest of the day" with an end time.  At a designated time, I will gather all the participants names and draw one from a hat and the winner of that day's challenge will receive  (by mail within the continental US or in person) a gift from me!  Each day will be a different gift. 

Sneak Peek:
Are you going to a holiday party tonight?  These yummy pine scented soy candles make a great holiday gift for only $15.  (they make your home smell like Christmas btw).  Available today and tomorrow at ArtSpace Maynard.

I think this will be fun, so play along one day or all twelve!  

Make sure to check my page Whitney Heavey Art on Facebook everyday. Please feel free to share.  The more the merrier!

Cheers!

Plein Air

Love the Pantone Color Reports!


Spoiler Alert:  This is a little premature, but I'm already thinking about the year ahead...especially with regards to my art.


The #30paintingsin30days challenge this fall got me thinking about painting more en plein air  in 2015; more specifically, doing a summer 2015 daily plein air painting challenge when I am away from my studio and down by the ocean.  I love painting, but do not want to miss a minute of the fresh air and sunshine (or fog!) of summer...so indoor painting has been a conflict for me.  I think this forecast from Pantone is a sign to go outdoors more with my paints in the year ahead!

Okay, now back to the present...and prepping for my demo on Wednesday and my ArtSpace Holiday Sale which starts on Friday!

Framing 6"x6" Paintings

Many have asked about framing options for my daily paintings which are on sale at Daily Paintworks .  Here you go:

What does "cradled" mean?  
Cradle refers to the edge of the painting which is cradled in wood which gives the board added stability and a bit of a contemporary look (though, in the right place, these look great in traditional homes as well).
Edge is 3/4" primed, painted and sanded white. It could also be stained or painted a different color though I prefer white (very nice if your trim color is a white or off white color).  It sets the art off the wall nicely whether the walls are white or a different color.
pink flower paintings of chrysanthemum and pink hydrangea
Hanging multiples is a nice option

daily painting of flowers in acrylic on board by artist Whitney Heavey Cape Cod artist
These look nice hanging on the sides of kitchen cupboards (think alternative to hanging plates or tiles).  Nice pops of color!
New England artist Whitney Heavey acrylic painting of crab apples
An affordable option (unfinished frame for about $4-5 from AC Moore that I painted gold)...though it does obscure a little bit of the front of the art (about 1/4" on each side)

Cape Cod artist painter Whitney Heavey regatta painting
Cradle is 7/8" (ps this is an acrylic painting on paper mounted on cradled board)
Personally, I prefer to hang them unframed as I have painted and sanded the edges so that they are ready to hang on a simple nail (no wiring needed for this small size).  

If you prefer the look of framed art, there are options.  The best would be a floater frame where the painting appears to "float" within the frame
 
In addition to your local framers (a good option because you can see what various frames will look like),  some online retailers who sell floater frames:  
**  (offers unfinished floater frames as well as finished)

LMK if you have any other questions regarding hanging or framing.

Thanks!

***See you tomorrow for posting #20 of #30paintingsin30days challenge!

How to Start an Art Collection (or, "Even YOU CAN Be an Art Collector")

 
One of my first art purchases as a "grown up" of one of my very favorite places.  Painting by Laverne Christopher


An etching bought in Italy while I spent a year there in college (gift from my mom)

A fun purchase...the art project from my girls' school auction.  They thought having a picture of a human heart in our den was weird.  I loved the color combo and find it brightens up our our little room with it's fun pops of color.

 
"what if it's not a good investment?"
"I can't afford to be an art collector!"
"I don't know anything about art!"
"I don't know what I like"

These are just a few things people say about collecting art.

Have you heard of Herb and Dorothy?  This modest couple amassed a priceless art collection on meager wages.  And look what they did with it!
 

HOW YOU CAN COLLECT ART:

1.Art comes in many price ranges.  Start small.  Set a budget and stick to it and don't say yes until your heart sings.  Do research (HELLO Internet!) before you go to a gallery or just start browsing. This will make you feel more informed and confident in your decision. Ask artist friends for help.

2. Do not worry about the investment (unless you want to make a business of it).  You are not buying it for that.  You are buying it for the daily pleasure of it.  We don't renovate our kitchens for the investment...we do it for the enjoyment.  Think about how much money we drop on cable, coffee, the newest gadget (seriously, how long does the joy last from those purchase)? 

3."Art is so expensive".  Really?  Artists spend their whole life working towards the piece you are looking at often with a lot of hours and days (and years of experience) going into a single piece.  It is not mass produced and is a one of kind piece.  If you calculate how many hours of joy it produces, art is actually a pretty great value (especially compared with the things mentioned in #2).
 
4. You can acquire art in many places*.  Just start browsing. 
  • galleries, restaurants, libraries, coffee shops, or anywhere with art exhibits.
  • art associations (which are no-pressure, great places to pick up artwork and support the arts in your community)
  • estate sales
  • art fairs
  • auctions (not neccesarily art auctions btw)
  • holiday sales
  • Internet
  • artists' coops
  • open studios
*talking with artists and gallery owners can be really helpful in understanding the work. They enjoy talking about art and are happy to educate you and really don't want the sale unless you are going to love it. Both gallery owners and artists sometimes have alternative options if you can't afford the work of one artist (ie drawings or studies by same artist..see below).

5. Start with your heart and your gut (they never fail as long as you have that budget). Don't worry what others think of it.  Does it make you happy, reflective, move you?
 
6. Why not start a tradition of buying one piece of art every year (or asking for it as a gift)? Some people have the tradition of buying a piece of art to remember a special trip or occasion. This is an easy way of building an art collection. #30paintingsin30years ?

Margaret Gerding pastel given to me by my husband on the birth of one of our daughters.  We couldn't afford one of her paintings, but were able to find a more affordable pastel piece by the same artist.

7. Art is a great distraction from the frayed carpet or the sofa that needs replacing.  Blank walls are boring. Art is a great focal point and conversation starter.  Original art gives character to a home.

8. I guarantee that if you buy a piece of art that you love, you will be happy every time you see it. Isn't the happiness factor alone worth it?  Life is short, find joy in your everyday environment.  Do you love nature?  Find art that reminds you of nature.


9.  Afraid you might get bored with a piece or lose the love? That didn't stop you from buying that Member's Only Jacket in the 80s. Just sayin'. Plus, giving away art is easier than a lot of other items in your house (think...old computers??)

10. Your art collection does not have to be important or significant to anyone, but YOU!  If you love a beautiful painting that your five year old made, frame that puppy up and put it in an important location.  Most people probably already have the beginning of an art collection.  Do you have any original works of art?  Art collections are meant to evolve over time...just like us!  


An ink drawing (one of 2) given to me as a thank you from Coldecott Medal illustrator David Diaz after working with him on a publishing project.  I love both of these because of the art and the fond memories of the projects I worked on as an art buyer for a publishing company.  Plus, I was pregnant at the time and this one always reminds me of pregnant belly in the background.
A sketch by my grandmother, Helen Baier.  The little sneakers were mine as a girl. 
A gift from one of my favorite contemporary artists Amy Goodwin





A wedding gift from a dear college friend (and amazing artist/college professor), Kristin Rothrock

Do you have the beginnings of an art collection?  Where did you get your art?  What is your favorite piece?  Why?  How do you buy art? Are you thinking you might try to start building an art collection?  Let me know!  I'd love to hear from you!

*****Coming Up: #30paintingsin30days challenge gets back on track.  Just taking a slight break until Sat after my first holiday open house THIS Friday (See here for details).

*The Asterisks

Please Hold
Out of Office
Stay Tuned
Be Right Back!

Do you remember when I first posted about this challenge? The post was called "30*** Paintings in 30 Days." What did the asterisks mean? They were the ish to accommodate for "real life." "Real life" has arrived. I was trying to stay on pace with my daily paintings and had made it to #19...but, finally, "reality" has arrived. I have my first Holiday Sale THIS FRIDAY. 

I will be selling many gift priced items including:  
  • daily paintings 
  • printed cards 
  • gift tags
  • matted and/or framed paintings on paper
  • mounted painting "tiles"
  • friendship bracelets
  • necklaces inspired by the sea
  • hand poured candles (perfect hostess gift)
  • can't decide on the perfect gift?  No, worries!  I have gift cards all packaged and tied up with string!
Items start as low as $1.50 with several items $20 and less! New this year, I will be accepting credit cards (also, checks and cash, of course!).

I feel like Santa here in my workshop (aka my dining room)!  There is a lot to do to get ready and the daily paintings have been taking more time than I realized. Lately, time seems to evaporate. I need to finish up packaging, labeling, pricing, marketing, framing, making my display and actually MAKING all this stuff! So, please stay tuned...daily paintings will continue just as soon as I get myself officially ready for Friday.

I will be selling all these hand made goodies, along with the goods from  
6 other talented craftspeople/artists/vendors (including Kelly Ryder) here:

KELLY'S KRYSTAL DESIGNS OPEN HOUSE,
Kelly Ryder's Home, 469 Mass Ave, Acton, MA

Hoping to also post a few pictures this week! Stay tuned...

Daily Painting #15, "Crab Apple Berries"

Daily Painting #15, "Crab Apple Berries", by Whitney Heavey
Half way to THIRTY!!  Wow, I didn't realize the commitment this #30paintingsin30days would be, but am really grateful I took on the challenge.  Lots of opportunity to grow that comes from daily painting... 

This was another shot I took on the same rainy run that I saw the autumn hydrangea and the chrysanthemum.  It was amazing how the colors popped that morning with the super gray skies.  Hmmm...might be something to think about...how the color gray can make colors pop!

Daily Painting #13 1/2, "More Roses (again)"

Daily Painting #13 1/2 "More Roses (again)"

So, I am painting those three white roses again...though this time I made them a bit pinkish.  I can tell I might have to paint these multiple times.  White roses present a good challenge in seeing planes of space and how the light affects these planes...oh, and the color WHITE and how neighboring colors impact it's effect.  

I was in my studio today for TEN HOURS.  These daily paintings are definitely a challenge...but the kind of challenge I enjoy.  I was listening to "Artists Helping Artists" on Blog Talk Radio with Leslie Saeta.  I've been enjoying hearing these radio shows while I work.  She keeps talking about the #30Paintingsin30Days and how there are no rules and the best advice is to "paint ahead"...meaning, be ahead on your paintings so that you don't have the pressure to come up with a new painting on the due date (a lot of artists, like me, don't do their best work under pressure).  I started out ahead, and maybe got a little too relaxed plus went on a college trip, and BAM, I'm behind.  I attempted to get a lot done today...ten hours later...and I'm a little further along but, though not really.  I think it's officially time to keep paints both at home and at my studio for those days that I can't be at my studio.   I'm hoping to speed up my work, work more loosely, trust my first instincts, and try painting some new subjects, color palettes, and techniques.   

Check out my Facebook page for updates on the two holiday sales that I am participating in (btw, the timing of doing this 30 paintings challenge is definitely interesting as I am also preparing work for these holiday sales - small paintings on board and on paper, cards, and a small selection of handmade jewelry).  Good thing I love what I do!

Daily Painting, #8 "Waves"

Daily Painting #8, "Waves",  by Whitney Heavey

I started painting waves a few years ago and I continue to do so on a regular basis.  I love sitting on the beach and studying the waves. It is one of my most favorite things to study and, yet, one of the most elusive forms to paint.  Think about it, there is no hard structure...just water, air and sand (...and incredible force which can be booming or rolling among many other adverbs...not to mention the roller coaster of topography and tides that this incredible amount of water has traveled over).  I can't imagine ever being "done" painting waves, because in my opinion, there will always be more to do!  If you would like to bid on this little painting, please check out my auction (bids start at $75) (with a "buy it now link") here.  Thanks!

Daily Painting #7, "Lilac Sky"

Daily Painting #7 "Lilac Sky"
This painting is me thinking about a demo that I am doing at Melrose Arts on the evening of December 3.  I love love love paintings by Turner.  I think the tipping point for me was when I was reading an article about him and he was quoted as trying to not paint how the landscape looked, but how it felt!  It made total sense with what I wanted to convey...the feeling you get in the landscape...which for me is usually a mixture of awe, wonder and peace.

Daily Painting #5, chrysanthemum

Daily Painting #5, Chrysanthemum, 6"x6", Acrylic on board, Auction starting at $75 here


I saw this gem last week on a very gray and rainy run while passing the Acton Arboretum.  I returned later that morning to take a photo for reference.  It was a truly spectacular flower.  The painting ended up being more realistic than I typically paint, but I think in a way it was necessary for me to study this in full detail before I ever tried to abstract it at all. 

While looking up the correct spelling for "chrysanthemum" I found this write up.  I thought the part about meditation was very interesting because as I was painting this I found myself in a kind of meditative state trying to make order out of this very intricate flower!  I also like the parts about being a symbol for the sun and the part about a long and happy life.

 "A symbol of the sun, the Japanese consider the orderly unfolding of the chrysanthemum’s petals to represent perfection, and Confucius once suggested they be used as an object of meditation. It’s said that a single petal of this celebrated flower placed at the bottom of a wine glass will encourage a long and healthy life."

30 Paintings in 30*** Days











My inspiration for Daily Painting #1 .  I saw this flower this morning. My inspiration for Daily Painting #1 .  I saw this flower this morning.  The gloomy weather only intensified the incredible colors. 







Daily paintings will be 6"x6"x1" cradled board with painted edges.  
WOW...quite a change!
Have you heard of this movement called Daily Painting?  

Several years ago a movement started where artists paint a small painting every day and post it online to sell.  Well, that movement has grown and now there are several websites to post these paintings links to purchase (often via auction).  I've been thinking about doing this for awhile and the the timing seems right at the moment.  Why would I do this?  Well, for one, it's practice.  Sometimes my big paintings take a long time to finish...they can be unpredictable and sometimes I paint to the point where I lose what I like about the earlier stages of a painting.  With the daily painting challenge, I have to finish quickly.  It is also a great way to increase my reach...get more work in the hands of more people.  I also like the idea of getting really comfortable painting at many sizes (the bigger the canvas, the more comfortable I am) Because I will be doing so many paintings, I imagine I will do several of the same subject which will also be great practice and force me to stretch and try new methods.  Plus, I like a challenge and this one seemed fun.  And why not?

So, my challenge will be 30 paintings in 30 days ***  (***or 30 ish days if I'm going to be realistic).  

If you would like to receive an email each time I post a new painting, please sign up to the right. 
You can opt out of these emails at any time.  I will be putting these up for auction here with a link to a website dailypaintworks.com.   Do you like my work?  Do you think one of your friends or followers might like it?  I would really appreciate any social media sharing, tweeting, pinning, etc!  Thank you!!!

READY.  SET.  GO!

A Better Cup of Tea (aka you should see this show!)


 
detail of an installation by artist, Christiane Corcelle



another work by artist, Christiane Corcelle


Now on exhibit in the gallery at ArtSpace Maynard "A Better Cup of Tea", a show by Belmont artist, Christiane Corcelle  

I really enjoyed this show! Upon entering the gallery, the large installation (see top picture) drew me in with it's brightly colored squares. I could tell I wanted to see this up close.  Upon closer inspection, I was delighted at what I discovered.  I don't want to ruin all the surprises, but the artist, Christiane Corcelle, has gone into lots of work to explore and make several varied works out of tea bags and their packaging.  Her printmaking background is evident in several pieces.  Even if coffee is more your thing, come and see this show.  The bright colors not your cup of tea? You will be delighted by some of her more earthly toned pieces using the remnants of the actually tea bags which take on a look of artifacts.  I really enjoyed Christiane's creativity, craftsmanship and attention to detail.  
 
You can learn more about Belmont artist Christiane Corcelle here.

The show runs from October 8-31, 2014 with an opening reception Saturday, October 11th from 5-7pm which runs in conjunction with "Second Saturdays" at ArtSpace Maynard (mini open studios 4-6pm with a selection of studios open to the public).

Open Studios 2014!

My plan to blog regularly got a bit stalled last spring...but, it doesn't mean I haven't been making lots of new art.  If you are in the Maynard, MA area this weekend, stop by and say hello! 

PS I'm hoping this post will be the start of regular blogging again...
