"Seababy Learns to Fly" - acrylic and oil pastel on aluminum panel, 10" x 14". Ready to frame, or can be leaned against a wall upon a shelf. SOLD. Reprints are available here.
I could not resist a return to Ballybunion and the castle on the cliff...another gorgeous beach photo from Bridget inspired this piece on aluminum panel.
Aluminum requires patience and many thin layers, but its texture and muted beauty makes it worth the wait. A bit of oil pastel over the acrylic underpainting softens the brushstrokes and adds a luminescence.
It is pod week here at shangrala....no, the alien pod people have not arrived, but this massive pod in the driveway is a bit like an awkward, ill-designed spaceship. Our son is shopping for furniture in our house to outfit his first apartment at school. He left us a few chairs and a bed.
Pongo was fortunate that none of his things were deemed desirable. :) The rubber chicken stays here.
And that is reason enough to head into the studio and to throw some paint around. Want to join me?
