Today I am posting a couple of square paintings in progress. One is a 12''x12'' and the other 14''x14''. I worked on the 12'' one last night until about midnight after this picture was taken and it is pretty close to finished. I added more glazing, some turquoise and some warm grey tones with white areas popping through. I'll try to get it photographed and named (the hardest part) so I can post it tomorrow.

I'm now set up on Etsy with an online shop to sell my small paintings. This opens up a whole new market and an easy way to purchase my work via PayPal. Check out my store at MarkYearwoodArt.etsy.com
The March issue of American Art Collector is out and again, one of my small paintings appears in a joint ad with Daily Painters Abstract Gallery. AAC is a premier publication reaching art collectors around the globe and these spots have generated interest in my work.
I have applied to a few regional art festivals in Kansas and Colorado this summer, so I will wait and see if I get juried in to some of these. There are some other events coming up soon that I will painting for including the Denison Texas Art Walk, March 27-28, The Paseo Arts Festival, Oklahoma City, May 29,30,31 and the Clinton, OK Art Show June 5.
Looks like a busy summer ahead!
