View of Insadong - Painting

Two posts in one day! Just trying to catch up a bit. I finished this painting today, well I think it is finished or I am just tired of working on it. It was the view we had from the 10th floor of our hotel/apartment in Insadong. I loved looking out the window -there was something new to see everyday.

Painting - Flowers From a cart

I have been off visiting family in the US so nothing has happened here on the blog. It was a good trip - good to go home to the USA and also good to come back to my new "home" in Seoul.

This little painting I did before my trip. It seems like everywhere there are carts selling something. These flowers came from a photo of one of the flower carts in Insadong. I loved the bright colors of the pots and flowers and I wanted something that was not as complicated as the cityscapes I had been working on. I am used to the standard American sizes of canvases and panels, this one is 22 x 16 cm or about 6.25 x 8.75 inches.

Now that we have moved to an apartment with lots of room and windows I now have space to have an "art studio" (a bedroom) to paint in! This is a good thing since I have lots of ideas for paintings and empty walls to hang them on.
