Today I worked on a painting of a pincushion and thread. I decided to paint the it a week ago, maybe longer. I wanted to changed the wood bock that I use to set up my compositions. I do this so that the subject isn’t floating in space.
Anyway, I spent time a long searching for the right wood block to no avail. Eventually, I decided on staining a wine box purchased from Micheal’s craft store. When I tire of this wood ‘block’ I can at least repurpose it. I know just the person who would love a bottle of wine for the holidays. It is almost the same color as my pochade box.
The painting is nowhere near finished, but I like the way it is progressing. My plan is to continue painting red things in a series until I have 15-20 12 x 12 paintings. I am tentatively calling the paintings ‘Crimson’ series.
Thank you for reading about my painting process. I would love to hear from you.
