“The Vagabonds”, although I didn’t know that was their title til they were done, has been in my imagination for a good long while. I knew it should be a large scale painting, and I had an idea for an old-timey, music themed portrait. I didn’t know they’d be at the traveling show (see the carnival in the background?) until the background was going in. Funny how that works. But it just seemed meant to be.
I don’t do a lot of large scale work, but this fall I’m going to be doing a couple of gallery events, which always call for some larger pieces, and these larger paintings always look great at shows, even if they’re rarely purchased. People just aren’t going to a craft show to drop a few hundred dollars on a large painting 😉
I really like how these two came out and have an idea in my mind for a large companion painting. I cant wait for people to view it in person! I even took the sand paper to it (as always!) and roughed it up a bit. Can you see the worn edges?
Another cool morning here and I am eager to start the day. I’ve got a couple of really sweet halloween paintings almost ready to show you. I’ll give you a hint– one involves pumpkins, the other a pair of witchy sisters. You’ll have to come back to see them!~
Hope you like the new painting,
