Two Pair

Two Pair 8x8 oil on museum board

Most of the work on this painting was done before I ever
dipped a brush into the paint.  It actually took me
a couple of days to get the set up right. 
Then I did about ten preliminary black and white
sketches, trying to simplify each time down to
three values. 

 By the time I got to
the actual painting things went pretty smoothly:)
I painted it in one day, then let it dry a  bit
and added the finishing touches the next day.
That's the way I like to work the best, 
looking at it the following day to get a fresh perspective.


  1. Clever painting with a neat title
    My fav is the chrome shaker - what a great job you did on it.

    1. Thanks so much Julie. I think I'd like to do another variation of this.

  2. Very charming piece! Love the looseness!

  3. Thanks so much, I appreciate you taking the time to comment!
