FRESH PAINT


I just finished this painting, so I thought I'd try giving you a look at it as I see it on the worktable. It's a full sheet (Arches 140 lb. cold press) done using gouache and watercolor. In the border I also used gold leaf and ribbon. I don't stretch my paper--I like to have it free to move around easily. I also like the rippled aspect acquired during the painting process. It will be flattened somewhat before it gets framed. And it hasn't been officially photographed yet. Nor has it been titled yet. It was inspired by the Olema marsh.

Enjoy!

I loved your painting...I am visiting my favorite art blogs tonight and happened by....I have not been able to get over there for any of the art shows with illness and a 2 week visit of family....now I am just tired but back to painting so will soon revive! I love your work! I really liked the gold leaf and ribbon edge on your woman and crane piece!

Thanks, Linda! The ribbon edge was one of those "spur of the moment" inspirations. What I thought I was going to do with the border didn't work, so.........things happen & I love it when they do!

Gina,
Glad you like it! I am anxious to see it framed--but have to photograph it first.
