"Black Plum and Banana"
Oil on 8"x6" Linen Panel
This is a linen panel I made from a piece of Old Holland linen that I took from a sampler pad. I mounted it onto a hardboard panel. I have to say, it was a lovely surface to paint on! It's so interesting how differently paint feels when putting it on a different surface. It seems I'm always searching for the best way for me to get control of the paint. I want to be able to make the marks I want to make, and not wrestle with the paint! It seems like I get lucky sometimes, and the paint goes on nicely, and it makes me happy :-) and other times, I'm chasing my marks around and correcting things endlessly, and I get disappointed. And I wonder, what did I do different? One of these days I hope to figure it out.
Another thing I have to figure out is how to get rid of the fruit flies that I've attracted with all of this fruit I've had sitting around! lol.
