Days End

Just a quick blog today to let you know that I finished my piece for the Oceanside Arts Council 1 x 1 x 100 show.

I thought of calling it "Looking Out my Window" as that is pretty much what I can see from my kitchen window, as the sun sets. I've decided to call it "Days End". One can just imagine another perfect day of fishing, as a glorious sunset calls the day
to an end.

This is a 12 x 12" acrylic canvas that will be sold for $100 for a fund raiser for the Oceanside Arts Council.

I had one week to complete it. I just signed it this evening, wired the back for hanging and took a photograph of it. Tomorrow I will say good bye as it is delivered to the gallery.

I have also started another painting, by first putting several washes of yellow oxide and cadmium yellow over the canvas. Then I start to block in shapes.

Stay tuned ...... as the painting progresses.
