It’s a rainy Saturday morning and I finally had a moment to relax. No students, no rehearsal, no Hubster and no Pumpkin, just me in my quiet house…
Ahh… Then Hubster calls to see how my morning is going (2nd time today), and proceeds to give me a list of chorus he wants me to do today. Seriously? I ended the call and turned off my phone, I just need some time for me.
I pulled out a few canvases, my paints and brushes and began to relax. So I decided to paint a Tuscan Vineyard for my kitchen. We’ve been looking for paintings to go into the kitchen but haven’t exactly the right fit (with the large price tags, why would you settle?). We want our kitchen to give a Tuscan feel, yet that’s hard to accomplish without rust colors in your palette. Our kitchen has shades of brown, tan, blue and green. I didn’t have canvas that fits the space, so I made my painting on two panels. To keep it cohesive, I used packing tape to tape the frames together in the back of the frames. Two hours later, I’m not stressed (phone’s still off)… and I’m ready for a glass of wine.
I couldn’t get a good photo due to lack of natural sunlight today, but I just wanted to share it with you anyway.
How do you like my painting?
