Once again, my dining room wall (BELOW) becomes the staging place to demonstrate the scale of the painting. I am going to enjoy it immensely here, until it leaves to reside on the perfect wall of another art lover.
If you could see “Invited” in person, you would notice the many layers of translucent paint, thick opaque paint, and thinned opaques. Together, they provide a rich sense of texture which I cannot stop looking at, particularly in the subtle white-on-white areas. This piece started out because of my love for the glaring-in-the-sun whitish walls. From the moment I clicked the button on my camera to capture the bold structure, I had an unusually strong visual imprint in my brain (much better than the photograph, of course), and could not WAIT to get home to paint it!
And now, I feel you’d be cheated unless I post some of the detail shots (BELOW). Enjoy.
PS: Take note that the detail shots below are not as “white” as the photos above. It’s the above photos that are more accurate.
