This is the biggest painting I’ve ever created…a whopping 30 by 40 feet in oil enamel on concrete. It is one of those very modern monochromatic studies in a smooth buttery-yellow. Dan vacuumed up all the sand the barn builders had tracked in, I did the cutting in around the edges with a brush, and we shared the rolling duties. It looks gorgeous…and though it is dry now it has a wet-look shine that makes the interior of the barn/studio look bigger and brighter.
Thanks to friend Adrienne W, for choosing the color. It is Valspar Floor & Porch Paint in “beachcomber”. I wanted to use a color called “artist canvas” (for obvious reasons) but it was too grey — exactly the color of unprimed linen. Adrienne has had so much building and decorating experience that she is practically a contractor, so we deferred to her better judgement…and the floor looks great!
