6" x 12" - Oil on Masonite
Plans are underway for a one woman show in the summer of 2011. While that sounds distant, the days will fly by! Some older pieces are coming out for another look, tweaking and maybe frames. Yesterday this oil on masonite was 16" x 20" - today, thanks to my hubby and his trusty saw, it's 6" x 12"! Nothing of value was lost in content, and the narrow format is more interesting. The scene was loosely adapted from a photo taken at a park near Daytona Beach eight to ten years ago - actually the old fence being replaced by the new one is all that's authentic to the reference photo. Wood and masonite are favorite supports because they are easy to crop! I am seldom so bold with color - and this scene is certainly more romantic than realistic.
