Treasures 36"x48" oil on canvas
This painting has been very patient with me. As I return to it once again, it has whispered to me, now is the time for color. The time is right to finish it, and honor the story. Though, I do realize it will not be a quick finish. Yet, anything worth doing is worth taking time to do.
Remember... pack your memories away, safely. One day, you will treasure them more than you thought possible.
I am painting over the grisaille. This is an under-painting done with yellow ochre, raw umber, black and white. Adding color with a mixture of linseed oil, dammar varnish, and thinner.
