Reflections All in a Row

Pin It
"Reflections All in a Row"
Oil, 6" x 6" on canvas panel.
$200 unframed.

I spent all morning and afternoon painting in my studio. At about 2:00 I went outside to take a picture of my painting and was stunned ... it was 92 degrees. I had no idea! Our house is 94 years old and the old plaster walls serve as a great insulator from the heat. Somehow I had imagined it was a 70ish degree day and I was a bit sad that I had missed an entire lovely and warm day!
Weather aside, I like this painting. The reflections were really fun to paint. I also worked on a wine themed painting that I am going to try to finish tonight. I have lots to do and I am really motivated to finish all of these paintings!
I will be in Temecula this weekend for the plein air paint out at Faulkner Winery. Should be fun ... although I hope the weather cools down a bit!
