Three Commissioned Paintings

I spent the winter of 2013 keeping warm by painting three large oil on wood paintings.  These pieces were commissioned for the lobby of a hospital.  I was encouraged to include a few more animals than usual, hence the squirrel.

The painting above is entitled Long and Lovely.  I used Ronan lettering enamel, and most areas have two or three coats of paint.  Then I applied many, many dots to enliven the surfaces and make subtle adjustments to the color relationships.

This painting is entitled Then and Now.

This painting is entitled Short and Sweet.
