Work In Progress, Pineapple Painting

This is a from scratch oil painting of a pineapple on a handmade stretched canvas.  The canvas is 3 x 2 feet and 1.5 inches deep for gallery wrap with edges painted  A huge painting for just being a pineapple.  I cut the stretcher bars out of select pine 2 x 6 inch material, stretched the canvas, and penciled in the sketch yesterday.  I painted (at left) this morning and took some pics for those that may be interested in watching progress.  As the painting progresses, I will post more re. palette, brushes, and such.  Please feel free to comment.

We got some much needed rain.  Praise the Lord.

Let us pray before we paint,
