New work

"A romance in lower mathematics" 42 x 60 oil on canvas by Kerry Steele

Last year I had a commission for a 42 x 60 painting and the framer ordered the wrong stretcher bars so I had a 42 x 60 frame just sitting around that I had every intention of painting. I just finished it this week and got it hung in my kitchen.


I have been spending more effort on the backgrounds of my paintings with sheer layers of color. I feel like that was missing from some of my work.
Here are a few detail shots of those layers on this painting.




This may end up in my shop but for now I am enjoying it in my house.

If you are thinking, "That's ALL you have done?!" No. I have been working on commissions including one the lovely Jennifer of The Pink Pagoda, will be showing off in the One Room Challenge.
I can't wait to see it in her daughter's room.

 I even did a bit of color matching for it.

I think a few people have been confused about my Etsy shop. Its still there but I only have works on paper there now.

Another delightful painting. I think my office needs that, but sadly my art budget is nil. :(
Can I have it on approval - hehe. Just kidding. I'd never send it back.
