|"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.
