Work in progress – Longing For Spring

13 Jul
This is a slow motion work in progress.  I started it late April and worked quite diligently on it until mid-May.  Then I had to get ready for a few art type obligations and had to let it rest for awhile.  So now am back at it as I would like to include it in my show “Full Spectrum” at the Saint John Imperial Theater from August 29th to November 18th.
I have added more tone to the clapboards on the side of the house, worked on the windows and the wreath and a started to tackle the snow.  I have been scumbling various lyres of colors in a circular pattern to get the feeling and texture of the snow.  I have destroyed a round bristle brush in the process – oh well,  just a work hazard.  Also been using paper tower and my fingers building up translucent layers.
Still have a lot of work to do with the shadows and reflected red tones from the chairs.  Starting to feel the end  – two or three solid more days of painting should wrap it up.  And then on to the obligatory staring and scrutinizing stage.  All is good!
