New Surface Challenge

I found a linen panel I'd ordered from Utrecht 
a while ago and gave it a whirl today.

"Day Camp" 
8 x 16 

As much as I appreciate the soft, textural feel of it,
I can't seem to get those juicy deliberate strokes
I like so much.

My friend and fellow teacher at NRAS
does beautiful paintings on linen.
This makes me appreciate her talent even more.

  1. Well Sue is a master painter. Texture and surface are everything. Each one would be fine but it all takes getting used to. I so honor that you are always trying new stuff
