I had started this canvas by painting it in preparation to make a piece for a friend's birthday present. And what you're looking at is THAT canvas but it is *now* a birthday present for my father's 80th birthday.
That's a long story and one not worth going into -
My dad is like a lot of people.....he really appreciates what I do but he doesn't really get it............Take this for instance......I can picture the phone call that I'll get when he opens it. He's going to want to know who the people are along the right side of the canvas and I'm going to have to tell him that I don't know.............And why did I 'use masking tape to secure the photo of you kids???'.....
What a hoot! I am really happy with this piece and I am very pleased that a new painting technique that I used kind of worked. I bought a painting technique DVD from an artist and teacher, Ann Baxter *is that right?*, that is such a good learning tool.
