I'm experimenting with black gessoed surfaces. This little 5x5 board was a quick study using an edible still life -- yes it disappeared after the painting was done ;-). I've admired the work that Cathleen Rehfeld has done on black surfaces. Her paintings are luscious. I've got 12 of these little boards so hope to do a few more still lifes as the month progresses. I've got a couple commissions this January so that's going to keep me away from a daily challenge for a bit. But I'll post when I can.
Thanks for following this blog. I still have some calendars left. Just message me if you would like one saved for you, or mailed.
