Fresh off the easel ...


A Long Winter’s Nap II: Andy  © 2013 Karen Mathison Schmidt
16 x 16 x 1.5 inches • oil on 1.5-inch deep cradled GessobordTM
private collection • Watsonville, California

After letting this one dry for a while, today I added just a touch of a warm sunny glaze to some of Andy’s coat, and made some of the highlights of his fur just a bit more high-lighty. And now (as my husband likes to say), “Zee painting, she is finie!”

Here are some close-up details:

 I kind of love this mini painting-within-the-painting.
