#47 "Lunch Date", oil on panel, 20" x 16"

While waiting in a Seattle restaurant for a friend to show up for lunch the other day I (as usual) began to see painting compositions around me. Since I always have my camera with me, I took a few photos. Before going to the restaurant I had gone to Utrecht Art Supply Store to buy oil paints (Gamblin) and supports for oil painting. I bought both linen and canvas covered panels. This painting was done on a linen covered panel. So far (in my short history as an oil painter) I prefer the firmness of a panel to the "give" of stretched canvas. I absolutely love the feeling of the brush gliding the oil paint onto the panel, and the lushness of the pigments. The Ray for the Day is "Lunch Date".
