"Spring Pleasures" Completed
Yesterday I finished painting "Spring Pleasures" and just in time too as I needed some spring cheer to help deal with the blizard we got yesterday. Shoveling out in the biting cold wind with a foot and a half to two feet of snow in some places is just one of my favorite things to do.... (not even close) . I know I sound a bit snarky about it all and well, snow makes me very grumpy. All I can say is....Orlando here I come, there is nothing in the NY winter that I will miss, not even a little.
Now it is revealed that my woodland creature is a happy little chipmunk nestled on one of the tulip leaves. The tulips, leaves, chipmunk and some of the background swirls are 3D with a texture you can see and feel. A stucco medium was used in these areas to create this texture.
This painting measures 24" h x 8" w x 1 1/2" d. I hope the yellow, pink and magenta bring cheer and make everyone think of the color and warmth of spring ahead.
