Artist's Description

24×36 oil on canvas

we were in Maine, I always had a camera in my hands…and my daughter Joanne was reading a letter..I called her name, she looked up…the picture encourged this painting….“Letter for Joanne”

This started out as a ‘Rub-Out’, I covered the canvas over Masonite, with raw umber and Linseed oil, I drew my graph into the oil…drew on the picture of Joanne….and RUBBED away the drawing, leaving the outline of the subject (Joanne)

Once dry I painted in the color using the rub-out as an underpainting….
