An Acrylic Painting on Claybord

BFF's
5" x 7"
acrylic on black Ampersand claybord
Working from a pile that is stacked to be filed in the studio, in my genre folders, these past several days.  Something about each of them spoke to me at that moment of sifting through them.  I LOVE the way the paint reacted on the surface of this painting. 

It was an experiment, but I think I will search for some more claybord and do some larger pieces on it.  I got this source photo from Morguefile - a website where you can use photos with permission by virtue of their posting. 

I moved these two closer together, loved the sunlight in their hair and on the edge of their skin.  So each of these last three paintings are considered 'daily paintings'.

Love this view...almost feel like I'm eavesdropping on their conversation. Great job on the hair!

I agree...it feels as if you're almost listening to them. And that they have a special bond. Beautiful work, Pattie.

Thanks Gwen and Ellen. They remind me of a few friends I have - who don't know each other, really, but it's like they do now!
