A Large Commission

Hi!  I have been working on a large painting, large for me anyway.  This is oil on a 36" X 48" deep canvas and will not be framed. It was fun setting it up, the client brought some of her favorite pieces over and then I added a lot of my items. I photographed the set up and waited for her approval. I sketched it on in charcoal and then covered the canvas with thin paint getting all the shapes and values in.  I just tackled one item at a time working my way around the canvas. She stopped by yesterday to see if, I felt I had done all I could do and wanted to see if she wanted anything changed. She loved it! Whew.  I signed it and painted the edges and now it dries, I'll deliver it to her and hang it soon. I think it will look great on her wall. I love the touches of red, so glad we went with red tulips. 

Makes me think I should do more large ones.  Have a wonderful day!

Milford Ohio

A few weeks ago I went out to paint with my Tuesday group in Milford Ohio. Milford is a sweet town with lots of old charming homes. This is oil on a 8" X 10" linen panel.  

Just back from NC, I attended a 3 day workshop with Roger Bansemer. Roger is on PBS, you may have caught his show. He paints plein air and travels around with his wife Sara. It was such fun meeting Roger, Sara and their cute dog. The workshop was geared more toward acrylic painters as all of his demos were in acrylic. I enjoyed myself and
met lots of nice people.
