If this looks familiar it's because it is. The original was 6x6". However, I was asked if I could repeat it on a larger format. It's the first time I've ever done that. Surprised me at how well it came together. Painting is such a mystery to me that I really didn't expect to be able to come so close to the original. Historically artists have often copied old masters etc to improve their skills. Since I have never done that it seemed unlikely that the two images would look the same. Shocked!
If you read the previous post you know this was the June challenge. I posted it again so it would transfer over to the Daily Painters site tomorrow. It's the only way I know to make it happen correctly. If you haven't visited that site you should. New work EVERY day and some excellent painters. OF COURSE you are visiting my challenge partners sites - right?!?!?!?
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.
