5 feet x 3 feet canvas, "Nicasio Fence". This is the start of a huge painting for my show at the Tiburon Library in March. The Founder's Room is large, with vaulted ceiling, and great light. It is rare to have the opportunity to show a huge painting, almost mural size, and I really wanted to force myself to do this for the challenge. So, here we go... I started blocking out the colors and shapes in this today. The fence itself is weathered and covered with colored lichen and rusted, barbed wire. It will be a great foreground subject in front of the rolling hills.
