Untitled Oil #2
Finally got back to this picture that I started and posted on June 12th - I didn't realize that I left it sitting on the easel that long. But today it called to me and demanded I bring it to completion. I will think about the titles for my two new pieces and perhaps have them named by tomorrow.
Untitled #2 / oil on linen panel / 18x24
And a photo of me with both recent equine paintings wearing my brand new prescription Jimmy Choo sunglasses!
The small easel just to my left is a Mabef folding easel that I bought to take to my Wednesday life drawing classes. It folds up very compactly and weighs only 3 pounds. It is made in Italy of elm and is a work of art in itself with gorgeous brass hardware. Its nice and sturdy and I may have started a trend in the drawing sessions as another artist already purchased one! It is lovely and has additional front supports to hold a palette if you want to use it for field sketching. I also use it in my studio for paintings that are drying. A multipurpose purchase that I am happy with!
