More Pastel

Today's efforts produced this painting. I tried covering watercolor paper with acrylic paint and using that as a ground. It works perfectly well, which makes me feel good about what I will be able to do. It was easier to keep from blending too much too, because the surface is hard and resists smootching. For this image I copied an old photograph I took many years ago on my way to visit Janet in Dexter. I painted it in oil once--I liked that one, too.

I haven't even put clothes on today. It's soothing to spend my time alone with the dogs. The day will finish by going to the play tonight. A social event after a quiet day makes for a fine Saturday. Posted by Picasa
