I did it! My first oil and cold wax demo. The Rockwall Art League ask me to demo for the group for their April meeting. The turn out was amazing!!
I had the idea that I would start a new painting (Somersaults #2) at the beginning of the demo, let it sit and dry a little while I talked about the materials and tools. Then, I would go back to it and do a little more on it. To close out the demo, I wanted switch out and work on the painting (Somersaults #1) I had started at home and add a few finishing touches to it.
As the saying goes - The best laid plans…. You know how it goes. The top part of Somersaults #2 turned PINK. I knew I had to let it dry before going back into it. So, I told the group that it was not ruined and promised to finish it.
So, here are Somersaults #1 and #2. Purposefully, not identical but still a pair. In the spirit of the pink, I left tiny bits showing, too.
I am still considering if they will be framed individually or bolted together or even if they will be vertical or horizontal. I need to live with them for a while.
Thanks again RAL!
