This oil painting resulted from a computer generated image that I designed for the Born to Draw Children’s Art Drawing Program. The computer image was to be a demo from the Matisse cut-out project that teach color and shape relationships to 3rd grade -6th grade children.
The composition of the piece had to fit an elongated format of the slab door without looking like a montage of two pictures juxtaposed.
There were objects changes from the original sketch. The paint is drying now and after completely dried I would like to apply to the painting a non-yellowing and UV protect varnish. There is not enough time to do that and allow the painting to completely dry before the artist reception. The painting was completed on a slab door 30″ by 80″ in oil. The sides and back ofhte painting is stain natural and has a hand wax and polished finish.
I hope that whomever purchases “When Life Serves You Lemons…” enjoys the painting for a very long time.
