Day 23: 30 Paintings in 30 Days!
"Big Shoes to Fill"
Today's painting is to pay tribute to all those husbands and fathers out there. My husband is a real keeper, and this is especially for him. Dick is such a great supporter of my art and even though he is the main bread winner in our family, he always makes me feel so special. When he used to help me out at outdoor art fairs, he even wore the name tag, "Mr. Karen Knutson". Here he is, a very accomplished businessman, and he's making me queen for the day, actually queen EVERY DAY! I like the design in this piece, with an abstract F in the background to symbolize father, and the papers piled on the table, because Dick does so much paper work for everyone in our family. Taxes, bookwork, receipts, banking. I used one of my 30 minute studies for my reference, so this painting was a pretty easy one today. The image size is 10" x 10" and will be a gift for my husband. I will be making cards out of it, though if you would be interested. They will be available for $10 for a package of 4.
