This painting has a sealer coat over the original oil. It protects the paint on the canvas and also makes taking a photograph very difficult. That said, this painting does not represent itself here as much as in person.
I painted this and then hated it enough to immediately paint something else over it. Such is my world. I have painted a lot of paintings that I have not bothered to post. I will post more tomorrow. I have a commission to do a painting of Kitty Hawk Pier. I pulled a muscle in my back and struggle with standing or sitting in front of a canvas.
