Still Working on Gallery in the Garden

White Space 9”x12”

Sometimes it’s not what you paint but what you don’t paint. The white space around the object you’re painting has to be designed and is an important part of the painting. You have to think, variety of sizes of shapes. And you also have to think of variety of edges. Sometimes I take a moment to remind myself before I begin a painting, save the whites. You have to think a bit about how you want the painting to look.

So here are two more paintings for Gallery in the Garden. I’ve got them framed and varnished, framed without glass. Like how much white space to leave, you also have to think what will be the best way to frame this painting.

So come check them out if you’re in the area Friday August 26th 5-8pm. Saturday August 27th 11-8pm Hartvigsen’s Garden 120 South 800 East, Centerville, Utah
