Bokusho/Pentimento, 20x20, 2006
Between PT on my shoulder three times a week and the ever lengthening lake house list of things to do... life is full. I took a few digitals of recent work to look over and decide if finished. The included image is for sure ready to sign, it's the one I showed in progress a few posts ago. I must say, I'm most pleased with the effect on this small one... now to see how it translates to larger sizes. Note the lines on some of the papers... these are original to my first efforts in France when the bare Plane trees worked their magic on me. I like what they add to the piece... must remember that variation. You can barely see the black paint of the sides, I've not done this before but it seems to work on these raw canvas pieces. I will often run the edge of a loaded flat brush around the edges to give a painted line but the sides are most often painted with same colors and style as the front.
We have a new Sunflower, and the promise of a companion Sunfish to go with it! Life is good! We'll put the boat in the water today, down by the dam since we wouldn't be able to manuver it down our hill (a car path will eventually be cleared on the vacant lot but that's no help now.) So J will have to relearn his sailing skills in a quick hurry to get it back to our dock. I mustn't forget my camera!
