"A Spot of Shade" nfs

Click on image to enlarge.

6"x 6" oil on canvas mounted on panel.

Another in the garden series is fresh off the easel. I enjoyed painting the bright colors in this piece. I've been working on getting color "accurate" lately and in this painting, I just wanted bright and happy color. The natural colors from my source were already intense, but I pushed them a little. My canvas was given an extra coat of gesso which produced a little smoother texture that worked well for me.

Thanks for dropping by.

I love this painting!! It has such an inviting feel to it, I want to sit in that chair and enjoy the garden!

I just checked my blog and it is set up so that you can leave comments with "Open ID", using your blog address here.

It is easier to notice on Blogger, I don't think I would have noticed it on LJ either! On Blogger, when you click on the button, it lists LiveJournal, Typepad, WordPress, etc., so you see right away what it is for.

It is on your blog too, so don't worry about figuring out how to add it (if you didn't already). You probably won't be able to see the option when you look at the comments, because you are already logged-in, but that is what the little eyeball shape by my name is.

One less thing to try to figure out!
