Kate sleeping.

Kate sleeping. 2002(?) – 2022. Oil on Canvas.
Kate sleeping was a pretty successful painting of my wife Kate. One of a series of 3.
It was painted on the then fashionable very thick framed canvas so it stood out from the wall like a medicine cabinet and di have little sculpture resting on the top (something I used to do a lot). I alway thought I’d botched the hands, so after someone commenting that they liked the painting I went back to it – getting the family to pose for the hands and painting away every now and then til I got it right.
This painting has be cropped to fit the new frame. This was more complicated than it sounds, with getting some hardboard, sawing to size, cutting the painting form the old stretcher, glueing the canvas on the board, adjusting the size and then fitting it in the old Victorian frame. it will be varnished in 6 months.
Below are images of the painting through the day and night. Fun how the light moves and she still sleeps.

Two of the hand sketches.
