"Floating on Blue" - SOLD

Click Here to Bid

Someone left this cute, little bottle at my last workshop. Since I was the one who cleaned up, I figured I'd just ... take it home for uhh, safekeeping. Yeah. So if it's yours, let me know and I'll uhhh, maybe paint it a few more times and then mail it to you. : )

Ah-ha! Maybe a more appropriate title would be - hostage. ;). Great painting again!

Carol,

Lovely painting! Would you please comment on your experience painting with gessoboard vs. the canvas panels? I'd appreciate your point of view on this, and suspect that others could benefit from this as well.

I admire your gray/blue backgrounds. Such a soothing color! Beautiful compositions!

I get great inspiration and constantly learn from your work. Thank you and thank you for the generosity of the size of the images of your paintings on your site. It really makes a difference.

The greys really push the orange and blues out in this painting, Carol, I like it lots!

Carol,
I really don't know if you have time to answer questions here or not. I wondered how you choose your 'wash' color for under your paintings. I always love it, but can't figure out if you have a 'formula' or if it is whatever strikes you at the time. I have been enjoying your blog since you started and for some reason never 'subscribed'. Dumb me. Fixed it today...

Even better than usual, Carol. You have outdone yourself, here. The blue cup seen through the glass bottle- very nicely done.

Thank you all so much for the wonderful comments! They are always appreciated.

Kate, lately I've been enjoying the Ampersand boards quite a bit. The canvas boards are great, but I think because I paint so thin, it's nice to have a surface where the texture doesn't distract from the paint strokes.

B Buggia, ahhh, I should really put the answer to your question in my FAQ - I get it a lot. In fact, I'll do that very soon. It's too much to write here. Thanks!

The colors and the reflections are wonderful.

Wow, this one is really stunning, how do you manage to get such purity of colours and such a sense of glowing light!?
