8 Great Paintings, my second Julie Prichard class. As I did in the last class, I'll be making way more than eight paintings.
This was an exercise in weighting the painting rather heavily on the bottom. My piece is small, 8 x 10 inches on a canvas I had previously gessoed and etched. Then I painted over with black gesso and built the painting on that.
Looks like it's going to be a beautiful weekend here, temps in the low 60s. I heard it was nearly 90 degrees in San Francisco yesterday ~ that's just too hot for this time of year and that place. Late last week we were hit on the North Coast with haze from forest fires in Siberia; this weekend it's expected to be much the same. This really is a small planet we live on.
And speaking of Earth and climate, I just finished reading Naomi Klein's This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate. If you really want to know what's happening around the world regarding the climate crisis ~ and there are bad and good things happening ~ I can't recommend this book highly enough. It certainly opened my eyes.
Have a great weekend. xx
