Paintings Update

Working out details with my printer, but soon I'll have Giclees for sale of the 4 paintings here. Most likely I will offer standard sizes of 16x20 and 18x24 (the smallest painting size is 30x40 after all), but I will offer a custom size option for those who want other sizes. I will also offer a framing wood frame or natural wood frame with UV glass. More details to come! Also working on a few new paintings..the one pictured here with the indigo and burnt sienna background and woman's face that's looking upward is from the live painting session I did recently. It's alla prima in 5 hours..for the style I paint, it's not possible ro finish a painting in that time because I prefer to do layers, starting with an underpainting. I did the best I could to get it finished for the I'm going to add layers and transform it. The woman with the wands and cape will have a similar finish to "Calling in the 4 Wuarters.." the painting with the birds in each corner. Same technique, which is a slightly different take on an Old Masters technique that I'm teaching myself. I guess it's of note to mention that I am self-taught.
