After starting with yellow oxide and then a layer of cadmium orange and red mixed, I finished with a layer of burnt umber mixed with pthalo blue.
The final step is the framing. Because store-bought frames can be expensive, I usually make "slat" frames for my work.
Below is another new painting that could be given away at the library benefit. Alice Gotchall, who has been instrumental in the planning of the event each year, will choose one of my works to be given away.
