Dogs day of summer!

Still Life with Copper Bowl
16" x 20", oil on board

I finished the above painting this past Monday morning. In a previous post, I learned about the use of the medium, Liquin, from Tracy Helgeson's blog. So this is my first piece of work done with Liquin and I have to say I really like it and will continue to use it. Once the Liquin is added, even my stiffest, driest paints are buttery smooth. It's especially nice when working on gessobord.

This week has been chuck full with activities away from the easel. Three days were spent working at Affinity AV. Learning a lot about website development and production. Mural work on Monday evening, and our restaurant and B&B has been very busy. Summer, you know. The weather has been in the 90s seems like forever and people don't even like to think about cooking--indoors or out.

Once everyone checks out on Sunday, I hope to run up to my studio and get some boards prepped for my next set of paintings!
