9 x 3 1/8 Oil on Gessobord
OK..So this is a piece of Gessobord that I had my husband cut from a painting I had done a few weeks ago. When I painted the original piece, the bottom of the painting just didn't look right to me. The only way I felt I could keep the painting was to crop it which is easy if I'm doing pastel, but not so much on a hard board. My husband was nice enough to drag out his table saw and cut the bottom off the painting. Rather than throw the piece away, I just "played," and this is the result. I might go back into this and refine it, but there is something about the lack of refinement that I like. Even though there are ghosts around the figures, I think it gives the piece movement. At least I think so....Just a fun little experiment.
