"Red Flag" oil on masonite 8x10" November Challenge
This was my contribution to the November challenge. You have no idea how hard it was to stop painting on a piece that begged for more. I'm not unhappy with the final piece but would have loved to push it further. Who knows! more painting may have destroyed it. I've been known to go off the edge of the cliff on occasion. Nothing like having to scrape off hours of work because you didn't know when to stop.
I'm a painter living in Enumclaw, Washington. It's a small town in the foothills below Mt. Rainier. My sculptor husband and I share 3 studios, a foundry,6 cats, a one-of-a-kind, custom, cast bronze door and cabinet hardware company and 5 beautiful acres of land on which we host a July outdoor sculpture show. "A Painting a Day" seemed a little over the top. Just up my alley. Don't look for any consistency in subject matter. The one sure thing? color!
Paintings can be purchased on Ebay of directly from our studio.
