Painting in the Process

Today I wanted to share another painting progression.  Last week I shared a whimsical flower painting where I started with a black background and worked my way forward with layers and layers of paint.   In this technique I layered yummy texture onto wood, carved the truck image into the texture, painted then filled the lines with oil sticks.  It is a rather lengthy process with days needed in between each step.  But the end result is quite capitvating... 


 Almost there.....it's amazing the difference the lines filled with oil stick make!
 Think I have enough tubes of paint?  Never enough....like my closet....never enough.  hehehe...


This was a custom painting for a sweet client I met at the Decatur Arts Festival.  I truly hope her wife was speechless when she opened it!  Because it was painted just for her.....

I just love opening up the page to your blog. Your paintings all have such a happy and welcoming feel. The instant I see one, my eyes create a magnetic pull on the sides of my mouth causing them to turn skyward. In other words, your beautiful paintings make me smile every time!!!!
