Velvet Aviator. Oil on panel, 8" x 8".
Still dusting off a few cobwebs, but things are definitely looking up! There is seriously no substitute for daily painting. Back in college, my painting professor always said, "get some licks in every day." It only took me twenty-six years to realize just how right he was. Time away from the easel makes the process seem distant and intimidating. Time at the easel starts the flow, and work begets ideas.
Although this piece is not for Mixology With a Twist, I figured out how to do one of the book paintings as I painted it. Look for a study for that one tomorrow.
Meanwhile, here's a fun shot I took at the easel during Velvet Aviator.
