The River Clare
This is one of my paintings in the current show at Art Plus Gallery. It is 18" x 18", and framed with a solid wood floater frame in natural finish. In case you are new to my blog, I handcraft my own frames in addition to painting the pictures! I posted about it here if you want to read a bit more about it. It is a second love of mine (working in the wood shop), although, I don't think I'd want to do it full time... It can be a back breaker! Anyway, this painting was inspired by a 6" x 6" painting I did during the 30 in 30 challenge I took part in in January. I liked the little one so much, I wanted to see how it translated large. I really like the larger version, but I must say, sizing up a small painting isn't as simple as one might think. The qualities I loved in the small painting, such as fresh, simple brush strokes, are achieved differently on a large scale. All in all, I am happy I sized this one up and am already planning some more!
