After many days of cold cold weather the Chinook winds have blown through and it is mild and sunny. We all have more energy and smiles!
Some small paintings:
Top row made a few months ago, used oil pastel which is lovely but a pain because it never dries and then has to be sprayed.
Bottom row finished last week, no oil pastel, trying for similar effect with brush.
More small paintings just begun, these made with acrylic.
No stitching the canvas, but texture underneath by "drawing" with modeling paste, then gessoing.
Also 10x10 each.
A whole shwack of small paintings!
Trying out new ways of working.
Some are on canvas, some on panel. Some stitched, some not. Some oil, some acrylic.
Newly made canvas: my traditional stitching but planning to paint a little differently.
Sewing seat in the friendly sun.
Also I have been doing some portraits, here is one.
