5 x 7 inch oil on paper mounted to hardbord
I have been painting smaller works in between the larger ones, the larger intended mostly for the gallery I am in right now and the smaller ones are stocking the shelves of my Etsy shop. I honestly love both sizes. The smaller ones feel intimate and the larger works are a playground for greater things (and sometimes not such great things). In art, you never know.

Vienna was straight from the imagination and Gracie May was from one of the gifted vintage photos I recently received.
|The Reservoir on a Cloudy Day|
6 x 8 inch oil on linen mounted to harbord
available on Etsy
The reservoir painting was from a photo I took while in New York City in December with my sister. Oh how I love that city. And once in a while I just have to paint buildings only. New York City makes a great subject...almost as much as Kansas. :)
|Back of Ampersand Hardbord|
I have seen a few artists that mount their works on linen, canvas and paper to these Ampersand Hardbords. So I bought some small ones for my own art and I really love them. They are extremely rigid and the art lays so wonderfully flat on surface without any bowing. I use gel medium to glue it down. Plus you can gesso them and paint directly on them. They look and feel so professional and I think the cost is reasonable.
Our cat Bean disappeared over a week ago. We are now thinking he is lost forever...I have checked the shelter, made flyers and everything...still no sign of him. He was 12 years old and a really great cat with a ton of personality and he could make anyone fond of him. Even people that don't like cats liked Bean. We miss him a lot. Our other cat and our dog have been hanging around each other a lot, which they normally don't do. I think they are comforting each other.
I am sorry to add on a sad note like that. We're okay...just miss our sweet kitty.
I hope you have a great weekend!!
