It’s That Time Again… Rare Finds Auction

Tonight I’m heading off to this year’s annual fundraiser for the Rare Disease Foundation and I was so to-the-wire finishing the painting for the event that I’m picking it up from the scanner’s on my way to the gala!!

However, I believe it is worth the wait/rush/stress.

I’ll be posting soon with a detailed video on how I did the layering and glazing for this unique piece – a sunset seascape called Sweet Dreams. Here’s the painting listed in the catalog:
