THAT DENTED DUSTY CANDLE LAMP
oil on canvas
Finally! A new painting! And I used the new copy board, with the help of himself, and am very pleased with the results. I guess I just have to get used to the linen, because the tooth of the canvas really makes me feel comfortable. Um...repeat yourself much suzanne? Even I'm a tad sick of the linen vs canvas debate.
Anyway, this was done in 2 sittings. I wanted to finish it in one to prove a point to myself. I did many of my daily paintings in one day before I was accepted at DP. Now that I'm posting with all of those incredible artists, I'm much less spontaneous and confident. Have to fix that. I'll be comfortable as long as I keep on working.
This little item was stashed in the closet, along with all of the other pieces I bought in the recent past, whose function it was to lend an air of sophistication and coolness to the dinner table. He cooks like a legend, I'm in charge of ambiance. I buy a lot of things. Dusty and dented with highlights of patina and rust (is that the same thing?), it arrogantly screamed "daily!" when I saw it last week while foraging for napkins.
Ah! It feels good to post a new piece. Off to celebrate!
