I remember it like it was yesterday. Several years ago I had turned our windowed porch into a studio for the summer and one evening this fantastic urge to paint something came over me. Had no idea in mind, but the compulsion to create was like an over whelming itch.
Out to the porch I went, grabbing a brush, opening some paint and let er rip. It felt really good just to "let it out" and then sit back and scrutinize what was born. After it dried, it was time to apply matte medium and then do some pastel pencil work. Many layers later we have "Dos Casas".
