Madison Gold, 8" x 16"

Madison is the our neighboring county to the east. This large corn field with Oneida Lake in the background caught my attention.

I had this prepared masonite board a friend had given me and thought it was just the right surface for this painting.

a lovely painting, indeed, adriana ... i've always loved the angles and shapes of stalks of corn and you've done them justice displaying them before that lovely blue lake in the distance ...

the slide show is a fabulous display of the wonderful work you do, too !!

Impressive piece, Adriana! Wow! How was the board prepared - gesso and pumice?

Adriana Meiss said...

Thank you Leah! The slide show paintings were the ones I used for an Animoto display.

Donna, Thank you! I think my friend colored the gesso deep red and must have applied fine pumice gel for pastels probably with very little matte medium because when dry the strokes were very evident and thick in places.
