Abstract Art in Gouache
Making an interesting abstract painting takes time and many layers of paint. This painting is Gouache, which is an opaque watercolor, made with several days of layering. This summer I had an art appreciation luncheon, and gave Sandy and Debbie Reeves each an abstract painting. I brought several to lunch and let them each go shopping for the one that fit their home the best. They told me that one of the paintings looked just like me, and I had to take it back home, and it is on my kitchen island right now.
Sandy's home is just lovely, everywhere you look it seems like something you would see in Veranda Magazine, which is my favorite. This is just a corner of her living room, that overlooks the terrace and the local golf course.
