Title: Sunny Days Ahead

Medium: Acrylic

Size: 11 x 14


This original painting titled "Sunny Days Ahead" features a woman in a white dress looking out across a bright green field. She's holding a dark umbrella to shield herself from the sun. The small scale of this painting makes it a great way to add the perfect touch of charm to that special room in your home. 


I created this piece using an impasto painting method, where I applied thickened acrylic paints on the canvas with palette knives. I love the unique blends of colors and texture created by this technique. I then used a brush to clean up the edges and add a few details. Finally, I sealed the painting with a high gloss varnish that adds extra highlights to the painting's texture.


I painted this on an 11 x 14 gallery wrapped canvas where the background continues around the sides. Finally, I installed a picture wire on the back for hassle-free wall hanging.
