More "small stuff" today as I continue preparations forÂ Thursday night's gallery anniversary partyÂ and the First Fridays Art Walk that follows. This little painting shows the setting Tuscan sun over a sloping grove of olive trees .Â There is a companion to this little painting that I'll try toÂ post soon.Â
Â "Lingering Light, Tuscany" Oil on Linen mounted on birchboard Approx. 3.5" x 7.75"
It's an odd size, I know, but I do have a frame for it. It would also look great unframed, just perched on a mini easel.
I am enjoying the long horizontal format I've used in these pieces and in my previous painting of Venice. That's the great thing about making small works--you can experiment withÂ formats and compositions (mediums too) with less sweat, tears, and expenseÂ thanÂ is sometimes required of a large canvas. And if they don't work out, they fit into the trashbinÂ a whole lot easier! I think this one's a keeper though. ;-)Â
