"Sail into the Sunset" (oil on stretched canvas; 24" x 24" x 2 1/4") sold

Collage of "Sail into the Sunset" (12" x 12" on the left; 24" x 24" on the right, sold)

I may be onto something big with my new pointillist style.  A collector saw the painting on the left on my Etsy shop and contacted me to ask if I could paint a larger version.  Of course, I could.  She asked for more reds and dark blues.  No problem.  The deal was made within a few hours and I sold the largest and highest-priced painting ever on my Etsy shop that day!

I showed the pictures of the almost finished painting to Janet yesterday.  She loved it!  The painting is going to be a surprise present for her husband who loves Hawaii.  Everybody is happy.  Ah, I love my job.
