|"Door County Gemstones"|
8" x 20"
Oil on gessoed panel
I photographed them at various times of day, and painted this one as soon as I got home. The rolled gesso on Masonite gave me a texture I adore. But the small nature of the stones made sponging a bit tricky, so I down-sized my sponge to... get this... an eyeshadow applicator! Yup, the kind you get free in your eyeshadow container. I love how it blends. Oh, I did use my Rosemary "Ivory" brushes, too, but most of the blending was via eyeshadow sponge.
This painting will be donated to the DPW Challenge to Help the Children of Africa. If you are interested in purchasing this piece, the proceeds will go to World Vision to help feed the hundreds of thousands of children dying of hunger there.
