Wine and Pears
36 x 24 Acrylic
You know I love me some Leslie and Dreama, but I truly am at a loss as to how to paint the 6 x 6 canvases, although they seem to do it effortlessly. I've tried. I'm not bad at a pear or coffee cup, but I just love to get a humongous canvas in front of me and start moving some paint around. That's what I did on this big ole wine painting. For me, it is so much fun to paint big. I think I know some of the disadvantages because when you have a "wiper" of this size - it is a considerable amount of wasted paint, which for me is not cheap. And believe me - I've had plenty of "wipers" - even this size! On the other hand, painting big is so liberating. For me it kind of expresses how I see living life - living large! I had this friend years ago who really and truly lived life large. She was large; her voice was large; her hair was large; her laugh was large; her make-up was large. . . well, you get the point. And that was her saying. I'm having a large time! She was such a hoot! So this is to living large.
