"Things To Come" oil on canvas 20x30"
This is another one of those ideas revisited. They were fun at 6x6" or so but scaling up was a painting bonus. Bigger brushes perform totally different. I've got a couple of new ones out in the studio that have nothing in common with all the other brushes. I can't wait for an opportunity to plop them down in a dollop of paint.
Then there are the blooms themselves. The Pacific Northwest is a soggy mess right now. It's nice to have the flowers remind me of what's ahead.
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.
