I painted it on a 8x8x3" canvas, so even the shape is unique. It's chunky and cute and it resides on a bookshelf , where it brightens the whole room. I cannot help but smile each time I look at it.
The canvas was a mistake. I did not realize how deep it was when I ordered it. What could I possibly do with it? Well, for this painting, I think it is perfect!
Have a fantastic day!

This is the first painting. I always second guessing myself when I work on a commission. Does the client want this, or do that want that. Is it too dull for them, or too bright, or too much detail, or not enough. It is hard guessing what a perfect stranger would like!
Add to that the dreaded deadline! In this case, I had only a short time to complete the artwork, due to my schedule. What if I failed and produce a suitable painting in the allotted time?
While commissions are stressful for me, I always welcome them.....I just have to remeber the sense of accomplishment I have, when the project is accepted by the client.
I believe a little stretch is good for everyone, especially us artists
Thanks for reading my blog today......and keep painting!
It's hard to go wrong with a blue and yellow painting.....it just shouts "Cheerful". The background was painted with a brush, but I used a palette knife on the flowers and grasses. That's when it started to be really fun!
I feel like I was able to capture the feel of the day......I hope it made you smile!
I remember this spot well. We were at an open air restaurant on the water's edge. Very laid back with this beautiful scene before us. When I say we were on the water's edge, I mean where the restaurant stopped, (no walls, just a roof) the water started! How could we not enjoy our meal?
I don't remember what I ate, or the name of the place, but I do remember it was on the ocean side on Marathon Key. If I could find it again, I would go in a minute, just to experience the atmosphere and enjoy a glass of wine.
Trying hard to put into practice the techniques Elio Camacho tries to push into my head. Brushwork, color relations, composition, the bride! Not sure if I was successful, but, there is always tomorrow!
