Saturday Afternoon in the Cemetery

Recently on Saturday afternoons, I’ve been trying to contain my ambition and use a canvas and a view that I can successfully realize in a couple hours. This is another 8 in square canvas, view of a bridge at Mount Auburn Cemetery.

Additional time this week has been spent cleaning and rearranging the studio.  Mostly, in the 15 months that I’ve been painting, I’ve been oil painting outside or in class; my studio was primarily for working at either the drafting table or computer.  So I’ve shifted things to best place a still life set-up and easel, to be able to take advantage of available light in the am, etc. Still need to deal with storage – taking old client work to the basement, freeing up shelf space for oil paint mediums, etc. I’ve got birch panels to seal – thought I’d try Golden medium on a couple in addition to the shellac and shellac plus gesso. Bought a large sheet of glass for a palette.
