The Good Life - SOLD

Pin It
The Good Life
Oil, 6" x 6" on museum quality canvas panel.
Close-up of palette knife strokes
The Good Life ... that's how I look at it. It's a new year and it's going to be a good one. I can just tell. I am blessed with an amazing family and husband who let me pursue my "late in life" discovered obsession with oil painting. Actually ... I am obsessed with palette knife painting to be a bit more specific.
So ... I know this painting is colorful (probably too much for some of you out there - you know who you are ...) but I am having a great day. So I decided to take the colors to the next level. Why not?
Oh ... and did I forget to mention that Stanford won the Orange Bowl game last night? Smile.

Leslie, this is an absolutely beautiful painting. Apart from the brilliant Drawing, ( I always look at the drawing ) The colouring is fantstic. I have a photo somwhere of a scip, is that what you call them? And I will try to produce a painting something like yours. All the best Leslie.

Congratulations on Stanford's win! And on the great color in this painting!!! I zoomed in really close to see if the violet was an undercolor or on top....Beautiful!
Also noted that on your signature, the "T" is crossed before the stem is made... interesting! Thank you for all your inspiration!
