Still Life with Jonquils, Pitcher, and Bottle
{6" x 6" (15.2 x 15.2 cm) – oil on gessoed masonite panel}  SOLD

Another small floral painting on a gessoed masonite panel to mix things up a bit. I am most comfortable painting on linen, typically oil primed, however I am finding working between a variety of surfaces{linen, gesseod panels, and cotton canvas} has expanded my ability to handle paint. This is because each surface has different properties and by switching between them I can learn what works best on each and then sometimes bring that technique over to a different surface adding textural emphasis where something extra special would strengthen the piece.
