Art Expectations Day 101

Summer Sunset on the Marsh

I celebrated my 100th day by painting a ton of other (non-Great Expectations) art. I was thinking about doing some paintings for my etsy site and started pricing small, about 4×4 inch, canvases. I wanted to buy a bunch. Then, a flash light went off in my head! I’ve been wanting to do something with all those 3.5 inch computer diskettes taking up space in my office. So I primed about 10 of them and started painting right away.

The one above is for Day 101, page 110: (I’ll show you the rest at the bottom. They are on my etsy site: http://www.etsy.com/shop/JulieFlando. Check it out please and let me know what you think.)

Pip wishes he could fall in love with Biddy (he says this outloud to her!) and stop playing “beggar my neighbor by candlelight in the room with the stopped clocks.” I love the way Dickens phrased that! Biddy tells Pip he will never love her.

They walk on more through the marsh. Near the churchyard they come upon some “ooze” and amongst that ooze is Orlick. He says he’ll see them home. So off they go. I can’t imagine that they want to be escourted by that gruff, rough (probably smelly) fellow!

  1. This is great and the funning thing is I was looking at the Appalachian Trail Communities and posted about Eco Arts Awards. Your repurposing of the disks seems like a good fit. I haven’t had a chance to look for more information on it, yet. I’ve been thinking about how to use all the political flyers we’ve gotten in the mail recently and that is what sparked my interest in your post and the ATC one.
