After agonizing over this, and thinking about what my friend would have painted, I finally decided to do it my way!
It’s really finished, I only have two more much like this one to work on, and although I’d like to do them differently, only time will tell if that will happen. Bob Burridge mentioned in one of his monthly news letters that he was using Cold Wax to seal watercoler paintings, so that’s what I did. I very carefully covered it with cold wax, and lightly buffed it. It didn’t run, or transfer, and worked just fine.
The frame is the only thing left to decide on. I don’t do frames any longer so I thought I’d mount it on canvas with some sort of border. I’m not sure right now exactly what this means ,because I have to find a canvas that’s the correct size for not just the painting, but a little extra size for a border.
Part of my inspiration comes from Zebra Designs & Destinations. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a post from Z, so this is a shout out to them as well. Z is always an inspiration, and living in Equador, it is so different from the US that I’m fascinated with what goes on there, and how Z finds time to be creative.
