Each of us had 10 or 11 paintings in the March exhibit.
We culled many from our first once-over before we hung the show.
We were going to try the "less is more" approach. (By the way, it worked!)
This painting, Fiat II, is the large one inspired by Fiat, 8 x 6 inches (see last week's post).
Since I did take some process/progress photos, I will post them for those who may be interested.

Underneath this in my sketchbook I have written,
"The most important thing is the thing most easily forgotten."
... unfortunately, I didn't record who said it.
This board is actually a cradled support (made by my husband xoxoxo).
It is 48 x 24 inches! ... there will be no frame.
I sketched a bit of a grid and the first lines in white pastel pencil.
The following are progress shots of what happened during the painting of this painting.

This painting was the last one that I finished for the show.
It was very hard to get a good photo of it, so there is kind of glare at the top ... so I may try again when I can take it outside.
We take the show down tomorrow, but I will keep posting the rest of the paintings that I had there.
Thank you so much for viewing my art!
