Yes I Can Can(vas)
Cabo San Lucas, usually sunny and dry, was rainy and cool for most of my trip. So when the clouds finally parted, we were rewarded with this beautiful sunset.
Back to the canvas discussion...Just as soon as I pronouned canvas as my lesser preferred painting surface, I found myself with these nice little canvas boards for small sketches. So off I went. The painting came along nicely, but when it came time for the photo, I was reminded of why I don't like it. Light jumps and reflects in unpredictable ways when in any direct light. It took me several attempts to get this little guy's picture.
My name is Jeanne Echternach and I am an artist.I've been painting for just about as long as I can remember. My blog is a forum to discuss painting and the whole messy process of creating art. I love to paint and love to talk about it too, so join in the conversation and have fun!
