Painting Interlude

 Dear friends, I know I said that I'd be posting about the Ringling Museum in my next post, but I needed a painting post. I've been painting up a storm - all big paintings - and I am loving it!
There's something about standing at an easel and painting with big strokes. It feels so different! The whole body is involved. This canvas is 2 x 2 feet in size, which is about 61 x 61 cm.
I used very vibrant acrylic colors (I love bright colors) and worked rather transparently.
Daniel immediately said that we are keeping this one. It'll be hanging at the top of the stairs. 
Speaking of painting, that's where I'm going now. A new canvas (2.5 x 2.5 ft) is waiting for me...

Wishing you all a beautiful Friday!

  5. Wow, I love this. I don't blame you one bit, I would want to keep it too.
    In fact, I don't know how you are ever able to part with your paintings, don't they feel like your babies?

We have had a bad heat wave this week in NY and I have not been able to paint in my studio room, way too hot. I miss it and hope to get back to painting soon!
