The Proposal

© Debbi Smith Rourke
Proposal  12 x 12 x 1.5"
Oil on canvas. SOLD.

Guess she said "Yes." I submitted this to the Austin Art Space show "For the Love of Art." Yeah - it got in!! As did the Red Pepper painting earlier this month - called that one "One Hot Mamma." (Was all about your interpretation of love.)  In this painting, I learned it's best to complete the painting in one day (ala prima) if possible, for the simple reason of keeping the paint wet, loose and flowing. Otherwise I have to wait 2 days until it is dry to start again. This painting was also accepted into the Austin Lima Sister Cities Juried Show -  Oct. 3, 2009.
