I wanted to show you this painting which I think I will title directions… I told you how I like to paint over paintings so I decided to share this process with you. The first image is the old piece before I began painting over it. I think you can get an idea it was a still life painting of a mask, book, bottle…in a chair.
Somehow what I wrote here earlier changed and one of my pictures disappeared…I am quite sure I did it somehow. So I am rewriting it.
darn it all!! This is the second time I managed to do this when I try to edit.
Anyway, I’ll try again. This painting is not finished but it will have to wait until I return. If you look closely to the left of the buildings you can still see a little of the mask from the previous painting. Once again I am attempting figures which I have not had that much experience. This painting is 24 x 32 acrylic and I will show it as wrapped canvas because it is deep enough. This one will most likely go in the Expressions of Italy show in November.
Speaking of Italy if any of you have recently traveled to plein air paint…were you able to take small tubes of paints on the plane? I am only taking my two bags on the plane…no checked luggage. I am going to look online and if I can’t get a definitive answer I will call the air line tomorrow. If any of you know I would love to hear from you…
Well, enough for now. From within my circle and beyond I wish you peace.
Until later then….
