I like painting on this size canvas...18" x 18". For some reason it is more appealing to paint on this size than a 16" x 16" or a 20" x 20" canvas...and, of course 18" x 18" is harder to find in the art supply stores. This painting is down at Studio Art and Soul, hanging on the wall in the eating area with some other paintings by fellow partners at the studio. Strong colors, thick application of paint and shadows are characteristics in this piece. I hope you enjoy it.
