Ice Cream Cone
12x16 Oil on Canvas
Here's my newest painting, an ode to Wayne Thiebaud, a long-time favorite artist. I've admired his style and decided to give it a try - I'm so happy with the result that I plan to spend some time on these seemingly easy one character still life subjects.
It looks simple and seems easy but can be deceptively challenging in practice. I enjoyed this painting from start to finish and since it was done as a study - a practice piece just for me - the pressure was off. Clearly I must find a way to get my mind into that attitude for every painting. Just relax and enjoy the process, get over myself. :o)
