It's finished!! I just listed my new painting on eBay:
A few things were added since the last post and a few things were cleaned up.
We should play that game where you try to circle all the things that are different. There really aren't that many though. I did add some white pumpkins to the top of each post on the fence.
"Front Row Seats at Wingate Place"
Sitting on the porch at Paulette and Don's home, guests get a front row seat to the most amazing show around and it's in color (blazing vibrant color). The rockers are more comfortable than theatre seating. Home baked goodies made by Paulette are better than buttered popcorn. For those popcorn enthusiasts, popcorn balls are sitting on a platter in the kitchen as well. Blankets are at the ready for those who are chilly. You don't have to be quiet or whisper. In fact conversation goes well with after dinner coffee or spiced cider. Turning off your cell phones is encouraged though or you might get one of Paulettes stares (you know the ones your mother used to give you).
I always paint my originals on 1 1/2 inch deep, staple free canvas.
The scene wraps around the edges on all four sides.
I've been thinking about changing to a regular 3/4" canvas that would fit into a frame. I don't know if people prefer to frame paintings or not to frame them. What do you think?
