"Evening Romance" -- 72" x 24"

I love these tall verticals! It's been a very popular size lately. They're great because the width is only 2' so they can fit just about anywhere! People laugh when they see me painting a piece taller than myself. I think nothing of it--most of my pieces are bigger than me...but it must look strange to an outside observer. I have to stand on a chair to paint the top!
I took some close-up shots of the thick, impasto texture. I use palette knives to build out layers of heavy acrylic paint. I want my paintings to come to life with texture that can be felt!
