Big Flower, Little Dog
Sorry about the quality of this photo. Life has been complicated enough lately that the simple act of posting this picture is a great accomplishment.
Having felt rather uninspired lately, I took a trip to a local art store. Yummy. I should do that more often! They were having a sale on full sheets of 140 lb. Arches cold press — pretty much my all-time favorite paper. I snatched up 20 sheets and plan to go back for more.
I’ve been using cheap paper so long, I forgot how nice it is to paint using the real thing.
And since I got such a nice deal on full sheets, I decided to start using them. In full. No more tearing them into halfs or fourths. No guilt!
I also got myself a little art table that tilts. Good thing, I really didn’t have any good place to paint on these big sheets.
Anyway, here’s my first effort.
The dog is there mainly to show the scale of the painting.
