|oil on artist panel 6x6 inches|
Hello! What a beautiful day here in Brimfield, Massachusetts -- the sun is shining, the sky is blue... FINALLY! I took advantage of this great weather to do a painting of our birdbath that is by the side of our pool -- I love this birdbath, it's so beautiful and really classes up the yard. ;^) It was fun to paint.
One note: I purchased 24 6x6 Ampersand artist panels last week -- this is the first painting on one of those panels -- I love this size! No wonder so many artists paint 6x6 for their daily work -- it's just right. There are many different profiles (depths) of artist panels -- the ones I'm using are 3/4", they are cradled and made of birch. When the paintings are dry, I plan on waxing the sides to bring out the wood -- no need for framing! I also have put a sawtooth hanger on the top of the panel so it's easy to hang. I'll post a picture of the final waxed sides and the back (to show the hanger) once this painting is dry and I've waxed it -- I can't wait to see how it will look!
Memorial Day weekend is coming up -- and we Malones are plan-free -- hence and therefore... I'll have time to paint! Yay! Hope you check back in to see what I've done. Thanks for looking!
