A Whole New Dimension
But that shifted with the commission for the 26 x 62 inch painting. It opened a whole new perspective. At the same time I stretched that canvas I stretched on 14 x 46. I have been pondering an idea for it and found two. No, not the image above. That would make three.
Today I have been working on little "cartoons" in the same proportions per my conversion wheel - 4 1/2 by 14. I have two done and I am in love with both. I just called the art supply store to see when they will have the 14" stretcher bars in stock. Tuesday! So in the mean time I must finish the paintings in the studio and enlarge my cartoons to 14 x 46 inch sketches.
I must thank the patron that requested that first "off-size" painting. It has led me in a direction I find quite exciting. And yes, there is also probably going to be another red sky.
