edge of the world
To create this one I used an old, discarded board. It had an underpainting, I think it was oil. For some reason the board was so porous (gessoed marble dust was on it) so I struggled to cover the other painting. It made me only paint the large shapes and paint them with thick watercolor, almost like oil. (It's funny how the gap between the medium is beginning to close.)
The color of the grasses first attracted me, but then upon looking I was most intrigued with the way the trees and the edge of grass met the distant mountains.
Today is the "quick draw" event. 10-12am pick a place in the town center it work...with and audience. Yipes.
