Breeze, oil on canvas 6x6" $99
I didn't intentionally make the background so close to the skin tones. That sounds ridiculous since I mixed the paint. What I mean is the light, airy feeling of the subject dictated how I thought the background should look. Mixed it up, brushed it on, stepped back and there you have it!
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.
