Sidewalk in Trecella

Eletrical housing on wall of Bar Pinto in Trecella (where  the retired men hang out at all hours of the day).

These are a couple of photographs I took as an "explanation" for my work. I struggled with the painting on linen because it was sized with clear acrylic gel and the Ecoline (liquid watercolors)  would have worked better on a gessoed surface. But, I like the linen surface and will try another, only using other painting materials.  Now that I am  back to using color I am trying to be parsimonious. Catrine and I discussed how the colors work best underneath the layers. I have to remind myself these things!
