Morning Glorious, 15" x 18"

My painting is included in the Still Life and Floral show which opened this past weekend. It will hang until July 18 at the Richeson School of Art and Gallery in Kimberly, Wisconsin. If you can't make it to the gallery, you can view the show online.

  4. Chris, what a gorgeous painting! I love the angle and the luminous light.

    Question: How did you get the spiral shapes in the sky? Was it on the paper you used, or did you put them there and how? Very cool!

  6. Thanks, Doris!! Glad you like this painting!

    Thanks, Vicki -- and I agree -- computers give us such a great window on the world!!

    Thanks, Rhonda!! Enjoy the show!!

    Thanks, Elizabeth!! The pattern in the sky is the result of pouring paint onto a stencil, more or less. It's a little tough to explain in a few words.

  13. Thanks to everybody -- Margery, LIz, Cathyann, Nancy, Deb!! I've just gotten in after a very long day of travel and I'm totally exhausted. Congrats to you Deb -- three pieces in the show!! Unfortunately, I was halfway cross the state by the day of the reception so I missed it.

  14. Chris behind the morning glories seems to be a slight pattern in the blue wash...how in the world did you do that? It's lovely.
