Click on the image to enlarge and you will see it approximately 2 1/2 times bigger than the original!

This painting will be available on eBay when it is completed....visit my eBay store by clicking the link at the above right.

Couldn't resist these little panels that I prepared last week specially for my Daily Paintings....the linen is beautiful, quality Fredrix oil primed linen and I've applied another coat of lead primer to make the surface just the way I like it. It's fiddly, but I find it so satisfying to prepare this linen and build my canvases myself....and it's heaven to work on. I pushed this painting as far as I could in one day...I like to work on a dry surface the second day. This first stage is full of possibilities, many of which I will discover as I apply pieces of paint over the dry tomorrow. This painting was inspired by my artist buddy, Joey Iantorno. Joey is an amazing artist, and person, living in Anaheim, CA. Although we live in different countries we manage to compare notes and inspire one another. The artist's life can be a rather isolated one, by choice, therefore meaningful friendships are forged and boundaries become seamless. This one is for Joey. Hope to complete it tomorrow, Joey.
