"When are you going to do some BIG landscape paintings?" she asked. And he asked. And they asked.
Well, the truth is anything much above 16 x 20 sets my mind in a whirl. So, this summer, I am facing my fears, taking out my bigger brushes and giving it a go. Facing a big white canvas is daunting. To get myself in gear I prepared the surfaces of a few older paintings and I am painting over them. The Old Masters did this all the time, so who I am to argue with the practice?
This painting of lavender at Sonoma's Matanzas Creek winery is painted over a painting done in a class a few years ago. It measures 24" x 30" which is a great size for a guest room, or over a couch or table or on an entry wall if you need decorating ideas. If it were a "new" painting, this size would sell for $2150.
However, I consider this one of my BIG studies and I am getting ready to break out and buy some brand new large canvasses. So, if you would like to have it for your collection at a BIG price break - make an offer. Anything over 1/4 price (that's $430) will be entertained. Not exactly an auction - but the best offer this week takes it. I can use the money for more paint and larger canvasses! Send me an email if you are interested.
UPDATE: Thank you for all the offers! This went to a new home on Monday, August 4th.
