Riverside Dream, 40 x 30 in., acrylics on canvas
Sometimes is pays off to listen to your spouse 😏.
For the longest time, my husband Ron has been exhorting me to paint bigger paintings. Until now, most of my pieces have been small and medium-sized... 20 x 24 inches has been "large" for me.
My technique of painting in layers of fluid acrylics doesn't lend itself easily to large pieces, since the majority of the painting has to be completed while the paints are still wet and moving. Unlike oils, acrylics start to dry pretty quickly!
A couple of months ago, before the show that I do in Asheville NC, I was determined to figure out how to go bigger while still using my technique of moving paints around my canvas with palette knives and forced air, before they "set up" on me and stopped moving.
With a lump in my throat and butterflies in my belly, I pulled out a 40 x 30 canvas that I hadn't had the courage to paint on yet.
I knew I wanted a blue-gold color scheme, and a design that looked kinda sorta landscape-y, but not much else.
After many much paint-layering, knife-swiping and air-blowing, somehow it all came together - whew! When the paint was dry, I added some more details with a paintbrush.
Much to my delight, Riverside Dream caught the eye of Tom and Katie at the show, called their names, and went home with them!
Katie and Tom if you're reading this, thank you again for making my art a part of your family 🙏🏼😊
