Second Version: 16x20, demo with a brush on gessoed board. These paintings were done a week apart. While the forms are more easily recognizable and the color ended up pretty similar, it loses some of the abstract quality. I like them both as different expressions of the same still life. Someday I'd like to do a palette knife painting in a larger size but I'll have to save for some paint as they use a lot. A bit more like sculpting clay...but with thirty dollar tubes of paint.
Tomorrow will be the announcement of the winner in the painting give-away. There will also be a surprise coming with it. I can't wait.
