Work in Progress: Lily
Every year, a semi-local gallery hosts a juried show where all works submitted must have a lily theme. Unlike most years, I'm not waiting until the last minute and am getting some pieces going early. I'm still experimenting with gessoed panel and have begun a lily painting on one. On one hand, I really like the smoothness, but I noticed the paint seems to dry much faster on it. Either, I'll have to get my hands on some acrylic extender or learn to work with this texture. Anyway, it might not look like much now, but hopefully it'll turn out alright and be hanging in Stonewall soon. We'll see, I guess.
