Really happy with the way this one turned out. I also love how it looks different at different times of day, due to changing light. So far I'm enjoying doing these Rothko-style paintings (except for having to use Liquin--ugh) .
Still haven't gotten around to looking at easels for sale in person. Have looked at some online, but it's hard to imagine what they look or feel like or just how big they are, from just a photo. And the biggest problem I foresee (besides prices) is that these things have to be assembled. Oh god. At our house, no one is handy with tools. Maybe I'll ask the cats. (The old easel is such a cheap thing that it could just be carried into the studio with one hand, after traveling in the back of the car.)
Thank you all for participating in the de-lurkage! It gives me a warm feeling (similar to these two below) just to know that a lot of people are enjoying my blog. You don't need to start leaving comments--I just like knowing.
