Today I the finished final glazes and touches on these two enormous paintings. It was such an incredible sense of relief and contentment to look at these two pieces and feel like I had put my best into rendering each of these over 8 months. Delicate layers of pigment were built up to create this vibrant canvas. I fear the pictures don't do it justice. These art heirlooms are going home to Sue Jannetty on Marco Island, Florida. She had me remake family photos into luminous, color-filled 36" x 48" acrylic paintings on custom built birch canvas that are ready to hang and be enjoyed in her home for year to come.
