Ties That Bind (study) 6x6" oil on hardboard $99
I've begun a series of figure paintings based on this lone female, swaddled in red fabric. This is a small study for the first painting. It helps me solve a lot of problems prior to tackling the larger image.
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.
