I spent the winter of 2013 keeping warm by painting three large oil on wood paintings. These pieces were commissioned for the lobby of a hospital. I was encouraged to include a few more animals than usual, hence the squirrel.
The painting above is entitled Long and Lovely. I used Ronan lettering enamel, and most areas have two or three coats of paint. Then I applied many, many dots to enliven the surfaces and make subtle adjustments to the color relationships.
This painting is entitled Then and Now.
This painting is entitled Short and Sweet.
