I Am What You Don't Know, oil on canvas 6x6" $99
Well! this little piece presented some unexpected challenges. First, being on canvas the texture of the surface changes how it photographs. The original is so much more varied in color and value. Second, the background is a pale blue layered over red. In the painting it has a purple cast that I just could not pick up in the photo.
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.
