oil on panel, 8x10"
This painting of Chicago's Cloudgate, more commonly called "The Bean" is another study/experiment from Karin Jurick's Different Strokes website. Its very different working from someone else's reference photo that you have no connection to, and - for me- to work in this looser, alla prima style. Keeps me challenged!
We are Moving! Yea! Our house needed more rebuilding than remodeling and it has taken a year, but we had a final inspection yesterday. Today is packing and tomorrow night we hope to be sleeping there. It's going to take a bit to get my studio up and painting again, so it may be a week or more before the next post, but its going to be great to get settled in!
