French Lace IV
30 X 40 oil on linen
The subject of French Lace IV is morning light reflecting on my favorite things--lace and pottery. Just like a landscape painters who is drawn to the elements of the outside world, I am drawn to the "landscape" of fabric and hand thrown earthenware with there peaks and valleys. I have the same feeling about my subjects as does the landscape painter.
I now have a true north light studio which is good, but the one big drawback is I can only paint in the morning. Shadows and color temperatures changed drastically as the sun move across the sky. Because of my work on this major piece, I have not recently painted anything small---my weekly small gems. Small gems will return soon. So what do you think? Your comments and questions are always welcome and are greatly appreciated.
