Stormy

Stormy
Oil on panel, 7x5
bid here
Hooray!  Mike finally cut some hardboard up into 7x5 panels for me to paint on!  I had a 4'x8' sheet of birch cut the other day at Home Depot, and for the first time ever - not a single panel was the correct dimensions to fit into any frame!  This poor young guy did not have a clue how to measure and make a cut!  SO, my husband gets to correct all of this guy's mistakes - thank goodness he will do it for me!  After priming roughly 30 panels with tinted gesso, I then started painting one of our old cats, Stormy.  It was bliss to paint on the smooth surface after so many days of canvas!  The paint bends totally to my will when there is no toothy cloth to grab at it!  I will need to take another photo in good light tomorrow, as there is a little "slide" mark on this one to the right - where it slid behind another wet painting!  Ah, the perils of having so many paintings in the drying stage!  This is painting number 759 in 759 days and Day 28 in the 30 Day Painting Challenge :)
