Got the day off today...yippi-ki-yea......because......well check out the picture of the studio below. That about says it all....and then behind that came...torrential rains and high winds.... The gov. declared the whole western side of the state a disaster area. Homes flooded, bridges out, roads closed. I feel actual pain when I see these homes flooded out because I was one of them several years back. Fortunately they replaced a culvert under the road that was the culprit and it swallowed all the water this time, P.T.L.
Anyway, I got to paint today and I worked on the Mt Rainier piece. This is one of those paintings that looks alot better in person. I also did a couple more to post later.Sold
Update on the "Crows" monotype....I guess you really need a printing press to do these except Leigh told me that some artists used steam rollers back in the 60s and huge paper. Also she said you can use ordinary oil paint and then a cloths pin for rolling but it won't look the same........By the way this print is about 9x12 , one of a kind (mono)type, $75.00
We ended up with about seven inches of snow before the monsoon hit. A one day winter wonderland.
