s and c
so here’s painting number two of some old friends of mine. i got this done rather quickly in time to witness their new life begin together (congrats again!). i’m still finding my way with oil and while i can see things that i can really improve i can see things that i like and that have actually gotten better. i abandoned my more typical approach for the idea for the background in favour of something far simpler. it was suggested to me to find an antique frame which prompted this approach but the search was quite fruitless. a silver, slightly aged-looking frame was found though, which helped fit the concept.
thanks must be given to jennifer bailey, whose participation and fabulous photo helped make this possible. if you’re in the ottawa area, look her up if you need a photographer. her photos are quite sweet and worth a look either way.
