The Fainting Chair by Dee Lessard
I have been busy painting and getting ready for a feature show in May. I will be featured alongside a wonderful landscape artist, Sharon Price. I will mostly be hanging still lifes. But I take these little detours to break it up. I met a sweet young lady named Katt who introduced me to a site to get "royal free" images. Basically, it means I can use them in what ever manner I wish and it's FREE! If you're an artist looking for photo references, this is a great place to go! (www.diviantart.com don't forget the T at the end of deviant....otherwise, it brings you to a different site) So, here is one painting I did from a vintage black and white image. It was a fun challenge to "colorize" it just by seeing only the values! I'm very happy with how this came out. The painting size is only about 8x10.
Hope you all have a wonderful week. I'm heading somewhere WARM and sunny! And bringing my paints! Hope to have more to show you!
