3rd color layer added - purple!

Triptych No 2 is done! It is a study for a large commissioned piece. The final piece will feature some of the actual labels from the Cream Ridge Winery.

Blue layer on top of yellow layer - one more layer to go!

My color work on the Cream Ridge Winery piece is nearing completion. I have learned much from the experience of making the piece and from feedback from Tim at the Winery. Today I will start the final version (and this version will most likely be in my February exhibit at the Gmeiner in Wellsboro, PA.)
