See? I’ve been painting… here’s the proof.
It’s not the clearest photo but gives you an idea. I didn’t measure it but I’d say it’s around 16″ tall. That means tiny brushes on those faces! It’s an oil painting on wood panel instead of my usual choice of canvas. I might be a panel painter from now on- I hate those little dots that happen when painting on canvas. The smoothness of the panel makes it much easier to get a silky texture in the painting.
I’ve been house/dog sitting (without my nice camera for taking photos of my painting). This where I painted yesterday during a thunderstorm.
I can’t say I had ever painted out on a porch during a thunderstorm before. It was awesome. The painting didn’t go well but the experience was divine. That’s Abner at the bottom of the frame. He’s been keeping me company here. We go on walks, he sneezes and sleeps. It’s been very quiet and peaceful.
Yes, that’s a blank white canvas. I started a new painting. Wish me luck.
PS- I could really use some suggestions for a title of my new painting. What are your ideas? Take a minute to stare at it and let me know what you think!
