ITALY - acrylic!

I finished two more paintings yesterday--- and added them to the sequence of 10" x 10" paintings.
The installation photo gives an idea of scale.

The smaller format develops quickly -- and has a freer look than the larger pieces.

I will give more time next week to the last 20" x 20" paintings.

I feel as though the show is almost done. We shall see. Every time I think I've concluded -- I find another image from Italy that I want to paint!

But... I suspect when I get to the Everglades-- there will be new things to paint that compel me in a different direction.

These look fabulous Carol, and they are so vibrant when you see them in sequence, rather than individually. I think they balance each other out very well. Beautiful work!

Painting has slowed over the past week or so. I was trying to get everything finished for my course. I had my final assessment today, and I'm now waiting on word from art school to find out if I've been accepted or not, so it's all go here!

Good luck with finding a venue. I love the title of the series - I think it's very fitting, and captures the essence of your work. You're so lucky to get the chance to go to Italy! I envy you. Good luck with it - I'm sure you'll wow them all!
