"September" by Kim Rempel, daily painters, Canada

One of the things September means to me is "Back to school". I did this painting for the monthly painting challenge on the Artists Helping Artists blog. I still remember the excitement of back-to-school shopping: all those new binders, pencils, pens and paper. I never really liked white-out but thought page protectors and the 3-ring binder hole reinforcement stickers (like flat, paper Lifesavers) were pretty cool.
5" x 5" / oil on wrapped canvas / $75
Note: I am waiting for my shipment of Raymar panels and am painting on whatever I can get my hands on right now. This is painted on a 5" square gallery-wrapped canvas.

Hi Kim!.... Love your economy of subject matter... palette and brushwork... right up to and including economy of text... to give the piece its title!

Very clever... very evocative Kim!

Good Painting!
Warmest regards,
