Oil on Linen
This painting is the first I'm posting that is done on linen instead of canvas. I couldn't believe what a difference it made to the glazing process. It's more expensive than what I'm used to painting on which is acrylic primed smooth canvas.
But the results were worth it to me and I've quickly become addicted. So what am I going to do with the canvases already in my possession? I might give them to my brother. In the last few years we started hauling out canvases and paints whenever there is a get-together or family party. People who haven't touched a paintbrush since they were kids are encouraged to add "something - anything" to the canvas. Usually I start out by painting some sort of form, or my brother will, and pretty soon people get caught up in the fun.
At the end of the party, we'll draw numbers and someone gets to keep the painting. Everyone seems to love it!
