01/31/2005: "Finished version of "En Plein Air""

Well, unfortunately it's still a little wet but I got it back in the frame and it looks better (I think). I know delivering a wet canvas is very uncool, but it's due down at the gallery this morning so I'm going to take it, and just leave a note on it. The "Before" version is farther down this page.

Thanks Dave,
I've found that I'm growing more fond of this painting the longer I work on it.

I'm still loving painting on the panel, I had to use my fingernails to scratch out all the teeny tiny bits that were left from when I wiped out a portion of the painting using paper towel instead of cloth (rookie mistake)...but after I did that and put on a fresh coat of paint, it really did look nice.

painting is such a fantastic experience it makes me want to cry just thinking about it.

No, that Dave (David Walker) lives in Maine now. This is a Dave from my home state. There are about 3 or 4 daves who read this site, that's why he always adds (from Nebraska).
