Since I retired, I have not been showing and selling my work. In fact, I have been painting very little. Thus I am not interested in purchasing more canvas that I would need to store so I painted this commission over top of another painting. The woman is a lovely lady whom I genuinely admire and she had no problem with me using an existing painting. After all, do you know any of the old masters who didn’t paint over their work? I am following in their footsteps.
Did I like the first painting? Absolutely! But I needed a canvas that size.
Do you want to see the under-painting? I created a video of a few of the steps. You can see it on my Instagram page by clicking here.
