Landscape Study No. 2 (Work In Progress)
This painting is for my husband, Christopher Vernon Stegeman.
He requested that I paint this photograph that I took from the skies above Arizona.
It is not quite finished yet, but closer than it has ever been! The following photographs are in-process images from the past few weeks. It is painted on one of my newly stretched canvasses!
Now that I am looking at it, I don’t really like the orange-tan color on the lower third of the painting. It had more feeling (cold) when it was stark white. Help! Any thoughts?
And for old times’ sake… here is a drawing I made for Christopher in 2007 on our 2nd “anniversary” while I was living in France and he was in Minneapolis. It never hurts to dream.
