elfreths alley 4th of july

“America’s Independence” Celebrate your Spirit to be American this weekend; Decorate your lawn or your bike with red, white and blue, Go to a parade and wave a flag, Salute your troops and give thanks to a soldier, Have a slice of watermelon or apple pie, Ride a wave or jump in the pool, Throw a volleyball or some horseshoes, Play kick the can and eat a hot dog, Light a sparkler or a punk, Take a rock and smash some caps, Watch the fireworks or better yet have a kiss under the fireworks, But above all of this, Be kind to your fellow-man, Have lots of fun and laugh until your sides hurt. Most importantly, Stand Proud and Tall to be an American because men fought for our Independence and gave us the freedom to do all of these things in this Beautiful Land of Ours. Happy 4th of July America. -bp

In order for me to start a new painting I must have order in the studio.  First, I wipe down my table and put away all my brushes and paint  I used during the last piece I was painting. Then  I get out a clean sheet of watercolor paper, T-Square, triangles and erasers, sharpen my pencils, have my photographs ready for reference,  and select my new group of music for the cd player. Now I am ready!

I  stare at a Blank piece of paper, the ideas one gets from staring at white paper is incredible!  First thing that pops into my head  is the  composition, then how large do I want to go, where is my horizon, I wonder if the Phillies are playing tonight, wow, it sure is a beautiful day outside…oops I got to get back to my painting, what color will I make the sky…..oooh, I love this song, I think I’ll dance now!    -beth palser

I am back in Oxford settling into my studio today doing the business aspect of the artist world. The Rittenhouse Square Fine Art Show in Philadelphia was successful. A big thanks to my customers for their purchases, I love knowing that my paintings are going to a special home and will be appreciated. It’s always great to see how your work is received from the public, but it’s very rewarding selling your art and making money from something you love to do for a living.

Each painting  I produce is like my baby; I watch them develop and grow from their beginning stages of life  and turn into something wonderful  as they mature. The proud parent that I am, I put them on display for the world to meet, and sometime in their life, someone will fall in love with them and I will have to let them go…… until that time I cherish every moment together.  Once there is a marriage between customer and painting, I know my baby will be leaving, so I give him one last kiss goodbye and wish him well with his new family. As I watch my child walking away with his new family there is a moment of sadness, but then I look down at the money in my hand and I am excited that I can go on making more children………This is the life of an artist.  – by Beth Palser
