Painting Pat

I had another day of painting on the dock at WildChild Gallery on Saturday. It was warm and breezy, a delightful day for painting. There were a lot of people out and about enjoying the ambiance of the island and the galleries. I'm reposting the painting of Pat because I found that I had tweaked it a bit. It was painted on Yupo, a slick, plastic painting surface which is not paper. I think I've written about Yupo before but the fun thing about Yupo is that if you don't like something you have painted on it, it is easily wetted and wiped off. On the other hand, you can't build up layers because anything underneath will be removed with the wet brush. Pat and I have Yupo that has been painted on many times, since the old paint can be removed; scrubbed off completely in a sink if you wish. If you want to keep a painting it can be sprayed with a fixative and framed under glass. Pat was sitting next to carved wood pelicans and a yellow cat sculpture.
