What a lovely day in Northwest Iowa! It's beautiful sunshine, and we've recently had some rain. Yeah, yeah, you all know what that means on the humidity-oscope but I stand firm on the conviction that summer is a wonderful time of year.
And yes, as a matter of fact, I am smearing around lots of paint. One commission project in the works, just now to the color sketch stage, but I've done enough on that to have it pretty much locked into my thought processes. The last commission of brown (er, multi-colored-subdued) athletes kind of prepped me for this one. There will again be lots of figures, a couple of them musicians, and a lamb. Yep, you heard right----and I'm having fun with it---I have no color restrictions this time---Yea!
As for the daily paintings to post, yes, the commissioned pieces are infringing on their time, but I did manage to squeeze in two new ones. Both are from the library book stage I seem to be in! They are color sketches on heavy paper, each 15 x 15 inches square. I will also upload them to my webpage where that handy little "buy now" button is ready at your command.
Ok, here comes a confession, I seem to have screwed up the photo on the second painting. Let me get back to you on that one!
