Cedar Grove 2013 – 16 x 20 in – oil on canvas board
Sometimes i wonder is I am working against myself. I could have done an acrylic painting. I thought an oil painting would be better appreciated. However the high humidity of the past 6 weeks has really become an issue. I have it outside in the sun trying to dry. If anyone has any hints on what I can do so I can frame it – please advise. I do have another 5 weeks before I hand it over. I have a frame ready. No time to varnish it of course.
I am doing this for my niece – for her wedding. This cluster of cedars are beside her parents’ country home. They are older than I am and as time passes so will they. I thought they would be a nice reflection for her in her new home in the United States.
