Where did my week go?


I think I might be overwhelmed. This month is the crazy, busiest in recent memory. I did finish this commission yesterday and I must say it was a fun one to paint.
The idea started out quite differently and neither me or the client were liking the painting I made a suggestion and she very sweetly let me run with it.
I used liquin impasto gel for the first time and was very pleased with the results.


This product added body without diluting the colors and it actually shortened the dry time.
I can't wait to see this one in its home.
The entry hall in this home is fantastic. I am talking about Quadrille China seas on two matching Chinoiserie stools, grasscloth and other gorgeousness.

 I had other posts planned that I still hope get up but for now laundry calls.

Ignore the laundry for one more day, that's my plan at least. :) Love the colors you used in this piece!! Have a great weekend!
