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.

Like my page on Facebook or follow me on Instagram to see paintings in progress and as soon as they are finished.

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.
