Red, Red Wine

Red Red Wine, painting by Regina Lord
Red, Red Wine
Mixed media on 18 x 24 canvas.
(sold~ Thank you!)

I thought I had grabbed a 16 x 20 inch canvas from my stash, but instead I grabbed an 18 x 24 and didn’t realize it until I had finished the painting. I kept thinking it was so big! I’m glad though. I like to have at least one big paintings at my shows.

I am so happy with how this one turned out.  I figured out that the best way to tackle a huge canvas is to not know it’s big (ha ha) and to do small sections at a time. After canvas prep, I did the face first (my favorite part), then the shirt, the the flower vase, etc.  The orange blocks of color were added last to break up the red.

I might try to get one more painting in before Friday, but not sure yet. Feeling pretty zapped. We’ll see!

(I am still waiting for my new painting from you – SA postal workers on strike AGAIN – they holding all our post hostage and even burned some- my heart sank when I heard that – I am praying that my beautiful painting is safe and will get to me when the strike is finally over – big sigh!)
