"Ruby and Lucifer" 8x10 acrylic

There hasn't been much happening here at the studio as of late. I've been too busy to paint, but not busy enough to feel like I'm getting anything accomplished. Finally... I was able to start this small painting a few days ago and work it through to completion. If you work much in acrylics, you know rendering large areas of red can be a chore. It looks sloppy and rough unless layer upon layer is applied.
I once heard it said that paintings that include something red are easier to sell. Hmmmm.... I guess this piece will test that theory.
It was also nice to work on something that reminds me of summer. It's been cold here for the last week or so!
