I sold my Sendak tribute piece today. I'm on a roll. I sold a painting last show too. Here is a little more work on the latest painting. I'm still not able to get a good photo. I'll have to work on that.

Lily of the Valley in progress

Sorry about the bad photo but you get the idea. I start by adding a thick layer of gesso on the canvas then add texture with my bag of tricks. When the gesso dries I stain it with a burnt sienna/cadmium yellow mixture. Then I start painting.

I am hosting the June Abstract/Contemporary challenge at the wet canvas site. My challenge this month was to create a painting without using a brush or palette knife. There have been some good ones submitted already. Here is mine. I only used a wash cloth, beer bottle and a stick.
