"Diversion"


This is certainly a different approach for me. I had lunch with a friend of mine Jeff Mauger. He showed me some of his older paintings that he used oil based spray paint for a glazing process. So I decided to give it a try. Once I had some general darks and lights I took the painting outside and glazed it down with the purple spray. Then I went back and reworked the painting, and glazed it again. I did that a few times until I came out with this.

Hi! This piece is wonderful along with Three Pears...are you going to place these up for bid? Great loose quality and technique.

Thanks everyone. I always appreciate comments.

I might not put this one up for bid. I am not sure how archival it is since I used spray paint. But I may change my mind.
