I finalized work on another commission. I intensified the colors and mounted the painting in a floater frame. They wanted a “Montana” inspired grassland, I made light the star of the show. I really like the loose quality of the grass, some really fresh color blends.
Shipping this painting to Western Washington and a couple small works to Robert Lange Studios in Charleston, South Carolina. I have been working nonstop so hoping to relax a bit this Memorial Day Weekend. I hope everyone else enjoys a long weekend!
My small wave paintings continue! This is an aspect ratio that is interesting to work with. It is well suited for something as potentially horizontal as waves breaking.
My next step will be to start the actual commission. That painting is much larger, 60″x23″. Sort of a challenge dealing with a hefty oddly shaped panel.. I tend to flip paintings around and move them about the studio… trying to see it with fresh eyes. Some people keep a small mirror around to see it in reverse. That is something I used to do with digital paintings, flip them. Maybe I need a mirror…
