Continued progress on oil painting #1118 on gallery wrapped canvas (36" x 48" x 1.5")
"I mixed transparent oils, Permanent Alizarin and Indian Yellow, with some Liquin to glaze over the roses and back fence. I did this to bring the painting back to the color harmony that was my first intent. It still looks like the palette knife will come into play soon.
Susan Roux, her husband, Mike and their son Jesse, got here late this afternoon. They got the gallery tour of my home, checked out my studio/office and then we all went over to The Gator Grill for our late lunch where "Happy Hour" was just beginning. We had just met each other in person for the first time and it was a wonderful visit. . . . . we talked about art, art again and more art." Can we ever get enough of this great passion called "Art"?
