Queen Anne's Lace

"Queen Anne's Lace"
Wisconsin fields sway with color and texture, hazy-late in the summer. The "Queen Anne's Lace"  petticoats along her sinewy roads and lanes flutter in the heat and wave in that proper queenly fashion.

Oh, boy was this fun. I put actual lace on a canvas then smeared joint compound over it. Pulled up the lace and painted over the texture.  When you go to my gallery on Dailypaintworks.com and run your cursor over the art, you can see the texture under the paint.  I've done this on many pieces, but they all sold before I could photograph them. 

Thank you for visiting today.  It's always fun to know you're there, reading and looking at what I've been doing. 

Wayside Garden

There are places in my line of travel where gardeners have taken the time to delight the eyes of those of us who must get from one place to another.  This is one such cluster of color.

This one could have been painted with a palette knife, but I used a brush to make these marks.  It's as sunny and fresh as this family's plantings.

Wayside Garden can be seen on Dailypaintworks in my gallery.  It's also for sale there.

Thank you for meandering through today.
