Some Stuff in Progress
I lied...the acrylic sunflowers are completed. They were painted on a stretched canvass that had long ago been covered with a rough textured, thick acrylic moulding paste. The paint could not be applied in anything coming close to smooth buttery strokes. And that's a good thang (spelling here on purpose to be cute)! I got a beautiful sun lighted, sparkly feeling here. As for the two long acrylic landscapes on stretched canvass...they have been languishing in my studio for over 8 months now, and I am FINALLY bringing them to completion and off to one of my local galleries...feels good! One is of the Port of Sacramento with an early morning rowing crew going by and the other is sundown on a Sacramento Delta ranch.
