A number of months ago, I wrote about all these groovy sites featuring art that's been created everyday by an artist. There are lot's of reasons why they approach their work this way, and thanks to our friend the internet, we get to watch the process. As well as get some lovely art for an affordable price, if we so desire.
With the holiday's quickly approaching, I thought I'd share my own experience with one of these sites. The above painting is one I bought from the very nice nick jainschigg. His goal in creating a painting a day, was to hone his skills as a painter in oil. It's fascinating to see his work over time and particularly his flower paintings, in my opinion, are pretty fantastic. The photo's of his work on the site are very true and so when my lovely flower study arrived on time and as promised, it was exactly what I'd expected. Well, and then some, because of course, the actual beauty of the paint was so much more in real life. The point is that the whole process was wonderful. No surprises, Mr. Jainschigg was lovely to deal with, the price was quite affordable and the painting itself is very special. If you're looking for a nice flower painting for someone special, definitely take a look at a painting a day for some possibilities.
