I just finished a new painting in acrylic called “After the Rain.” It is one that I have been wanting to paint. I have not painted mist in the air or fog before so it was a challenge. Being a self taught artist every time that I try something new it stretches me. I can remember the first time I painted water, I thought that I would never be able to get it, now it is second nature and only takes a fifth of the time it did the first time with better and more realistic results.
The afternoon that I took this picture it had just stopped raining and the sun had just come out. It was one of those moments that you just grab the camera and hope you get out there before that fleeting moment passes. This time I happened to get there in time. So often it is just a passing moment, that last only for a few seconds, that you wish you already had the camera in hand and didn’t have to go get it. This painting was inspired by one of those moments that I was able to capture with the digital camera.
This painting is 18″ by 18″ famed. I will be offering signed and numbered limited originals prints on canvas with the retouch done my myself. Each signed print will be protected by two isolation coats of a Acrylic soft gel and then two top coats of a polymer varnish with UVLS protection.
