WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD! acrylic on canvas

WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD! acrylic on canvas, 28x22, in exhibition and for sale at the restaurant/bar  Inn at the Park, Spruce and 6th St., San Diego, California. It seemed the perfect painting to start this New Year 2014. Happy New Year!

I was reading recently about Delacroix. He admired Rubens, was a great reader, and very curious. Eugene Delacroix was in constant search of new techniques.  He liked to prepare backgrounds, many of them, without any idea how he would later use them. Then, when he was ready to paint, he would look at the 20 or 30 backgrounds, and select the one to start his new painting.
