We’ve completed framing of the Colorado Judicial District 14 painting out of re-purposed barn wood. This was a new experience for me, but quite easy, and it looks ready for display where ever the good folks in Routt county wish to hang it.
A 4″x 5.75″ original watercolor. Realism is such a challenge, but once you get going, it’s something that just keeps driving you forward with each brush stroke. This painting’s available, contact me for purchase information.
Now the fun begins, with more work on a Springfield 1903 USMC Rifle. Pretty fun!
Merry Christmas! Today’s project is a serices of leaves 10×10 inch textured acrylic on canvas and board.
“Hand Made Chair” is an 11″x 22″ Acrylic on Paper painting that just kind of happened. It was a different experience for me, since I worked from a picture without a drawing or underpainting. I treated it as a negative (black spaces first) and did everything around the chair. It got to the point where I was dying to get into the chair to do some details. Alas, I held back and boom, the chair just popped out. I think I’ll let it sit for a day to decide if it’s done (I’m leaning that way, don’t want to over-work it!)
