Wireless Alberta, Abandoned Farmhouse (oil on oak board)

Have been playing with the texture of the paint the past few months, trying to use it physically rather than just render a specific image I have in mind. Sometimes it works better than others, I’ll admit that. I like it when it’s deep enough to carve into, actually, and have played with that a bit here. With enough time and patience, it might bring new meaning to the term layers. It’s quite ‘messy’ though, for lack of a better term.

Church Painting for Auction

Spent the last few nights painting my mothers church for her and my Aunt to auction off at the church bazaar this weekend. It’s really not the style that’s liked out there, but maybe they’ll get a few dollars for it anyway. Every little bit helps … and let’s face it, my baking skills are marginal at best. I’ll make finishing touches tomorrow as gotta sleep soon.
