I have been working off and on painting a piece that is going into the annual Square Foot show in Bismarck, ND. The specs for the show are paintings done on 12×12″ canvases that the show organizers supply to each artist that enters.
This year I’ve decided to do something a little different. I’ve taken the two canvases and attached them to each other with a backing board and I painted a larger picture (12×24″). The painting is painted in such a way that it can be sold as two separate pieces or both pieces can be sold together and hung that way. The buyer could even place them in a 12×24″ frame to display them together.
Anyway, you don’t get to see that piece today. I know, I’m such a meanie. Honey Bunny would agree with you. Today I am posting the study that I did to prepare for the larger piece. Though the proportions aren’t the same, it gave me an idea as to what I was wanting accomplish.
Look for the show piece tomorrow.
