SOLD to a collector in Massachusetts

Finally I tried a bigger canvas than my usual 6" x 6" and 8" x 10" ones. It was somewhat intimidating to set a large blank canvas on my easel. But by the time I'd finished setting up the scene I was eager to paint. I'm happy for the hours spent on this painting. However my camera did not quite catch the colors of the completed painting. Isn't that often the story? We struggle to create just the perfect color relationships which are then often lost in the photo or the upload to the blog. Anyway, off to find another big canvas.

  1. Absolutely beautiful painting. I love your subject matter too. I know what you mean about the photos. I would post more if I could get the blog photo to look anything like the actual photo.

  2. This is a lovely piece. I have painted two pieces, since high school, so I understand how the size of this canvas felt overwheleming. Love the colors, even if they have been lost there glow of your mixture of oils, do to the camera. Believe me, this is really nice, sitting on the other side of the canvas.
