Wow, I am slow to finish paintings these days. But so glad I have time again this summer to work on them. There are currently 3 under way at the moment and this is the first one to officially be finished.
My newest painting..."Charlie Lake Sunset" is based on a photograph of Charlie Lake during one of the most amazing sunsets. Done in acrylic on canvas. I have a few other sunset paintings (I think I like sunsets and water...just a hunch).
On a side note, it is odd how quickly one forgets how to do things. After a few months of completely ignoring my artwork and website, I almost couldn't remember how to do basic things such as upload images and use the scanner. My partner suggested that I write myself a little 'how-to' manual so I don't forget in the future. Good idea.
Anyways, hopefully there will be more new artwork again soon--just putting some finishing touches on a few and then I will be done. And I couldn't wait to start a new painting, so I have put the background colour on a new canvas this morning that I can not wait to get my hands on.
