Red Raven Show in Lancaster, PA

The November show at the Red Raven Art Company was a huge success for me – eight paintings sold! The First Friday opening event was packed with art lovers and demonstrated the vibrancy of the Lancaster art scene. Thanks to Lee Lovett, gallery manager for all her help in making it such an amazing show.

Tinted gesso on black board; early block-in of shapes

I learned this technique from Karen Margulis using Liquitex clear gesso which has a great pumice-like texture. I started with black board and used a 2″ brush to apply the gesso that I tinted with a dark green acrylic. The texture gives the final painting a loose look.

Early Riser is a Happy Rider
