Light

How light bounces of different surfaces is actually what painting is all about. Trying to capture the light is elusive but oh so fascinating.
I haven't been painting much these last few weeks,I think the long winter was dampening my spirits.I know that is really not an excuse.A dear friend and artist has said to me to keep my brushes wet and I think ultimately that practice of painting everyday is the best teacher so any time away from painting I regret very much unless its absolutely necessary. So I resolve to paint and post more regularly. I hope and wish that all my fellow artists out there also find joy in their art and find more time to paint.

  2. Beautifully done...I love the reflective quality of your work...it also contains so many variations of color and a wonderfully applied brushstroke.

  5. Light is surely the most important thing in painting, and none of your paintings are deprived of that...like here, so shiny and full of playing light.
