Lylas 2 ~ "Connie" Gamut Control ~ New Giclees


LYLAS 2 " Connie" Acrylic
9" x 12" Gallery Wrapped Canvas, 3/4" profile black (depth)

LYLAS is Internet slang for Love You Like A Sister (see this post) and this is the second in the series.
Last week Gamut Control made me two more giclees. One for "Shop Talking" and one for "Our Crystal Bridge", and the original was sent to the Bridging Heaven and Earth Foundation. See my entry at this site. Giclees can be ordered from me. Artists can contact the organization if they would like to participate in the Bridging project.
Check my web site for more information on Gamut's fine art reproduction process. John from Gamut said "Shop Talking" was the first giclee used to introduce the new Image Capture process. It will be formally introduced June 7. John said, "It came out better than the original." The process is no glare and eliminates cross filtering and maintains the texture and it is a 20 layer image. Here are my other images on the Gamut artist site.
Last week was the monthly SWS meeting and Gale Webb from Lubbock gave a great figurative demo painting with liquid acrylics. Thanks Gale and I'm sorry I missed your SWS workshop. H & R Block has been breathing down my neck. Aren't we glad April 15th is over for another year and we all promise to keep better records and receipts.

Judi Betts said we should change colors every inch or two. By George, I think you've done it ... again! Really neat painting, Miss Teacher Lady!

I like the series of ladies you are painting, Nancy. The one on this post is especially nice.
Thanks for sharing.

Connie and Margie, thanks for the comments. C, can't wait until our Burridge in Corpus workshop and MW, we missed dare you have other friends to paint with in "plein air" in Fredericksburg. It sounded like a wonderful opportunity. Glad you're home.

I take my hat off to anyone who can master watercolor. I think it's the hardest medium, but your work looks effortless!
