Sub Rosa, the unfinished painting on the easel, is moving along.  The underpainting is nearly done.  The white-seeming ground visible throughout the painting is actually a middle-ish gray tone.  Compare it with your eyes to the dab of white in the middle of the palette.

Sub Rosa is based on photos taken during last year’s Festival of the Fish in Vermilion.  The Festival is in June and is one of the town’s important yearly events.  I take a large number of photos during the Festivals.

The painting in the background, Women in Sandals, is part of the Playhouse Square series.
