Start of a new series based on family photos

Oil with a palette knife on Ampersand Gessobord
SOLD

I am really excited to start a new series of paintings based on some old family photos. I painted this one this past weekend and I have 5 others planned, prepped, and ready to go. It's been awhile since the last series and I am so anxious to get them all done. I also love this unique size from Ampersand. All the paintings in the series won't be this size, but I may have to purchase a few more because this was so much fun.

Here are a few close up shots that show the color and the texture of the palette knife a little better.

Ann, This is lovely. So sweet! Thank you for sharing. I have a photo from 40 years ago that I would like to do something with! I look forward to seeing the rest of your series. Terri

Ann! I so love when you work from old photos, drawing and painting alike! The textures are just amazing in this piece, love the unique size substrate and I do love her bathing suit too! (Mommy's that is!)
