"Ah, What a Day" oil on board, 8x8"
It's funny how you feel about a painting once you see it photographed and on screen. The colors here didn't seem so vivid when I was working on it. I was so in love with the odd composition and the fat little paw the the rest escaped. I think it may mean a trip back to the paint box. I work at the office the next 4 days so time away should give me a new perspective. Stay tuned.
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.
