"Lavender Farm" - Susan Ogilvie Workshop Piece



I had a wonderful learning experience at a Susan Ogilvie workshop last week. This is one of my favorites that I completed. It's 12"x20" on prepared gatorfoam (a violet acrylic under-painting with a pumice mixture on top) Used primarily Terry Ludwig's, Schmincke, Great American's, and Girault's.

I'm not doing anything more to this piece...as Susan liked it as is!

Wow. I'm impressed. You have really come a long way bro. Keep it up. You have actually inspired me to start painting again. I am working on my 5 painting this all done in less than a year. I have never done that. Is that what happens when you turn 55? Ha

You rascal... you are way more accomplished than you let on last week... I am so impressed!! Your paintings were great at the workshop, but your photography is awesome. I have lots of questions for you, as soon as I can get them organized. --------Vicki Johnson
