Here's a view of a panel I'm painting on today and the backside of another painting.
I love the texture of these "primed smooth" panels by Ampersand. I also have a preference for non-framed art in my home and these panels come in depths (these have a 1.5" cradle) that you can paint, or keep clean.
The subject of my painting was a yummy Bosc pear. Last weekend it was so beautiful in Columbia that I spent more time outside trying to photograph fruit in natural light than I actually spent painting.
I'll be working on a second Bosc painting next week that was set up on a cream colored cloth. And no, don't try eating Nandina berries with your pear. They were near my photo set up and I loved the color combination.
Back to painting!
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
