Sunlit Reflections

Pin It
"Sunlit Reflections"
Oil, 6" x 6" on museum quality canvas panel
$200 with display easel.
Today was a crazy day as I was taking care of all of the final plans for the workshop. Dreama and I really want this to be an incredible experience so we have lots of surprises and fun things to do during the four days. But the preparation is pretty hectic ... and we still have a few last minute things to do (like shop for the gourmet meals ...).
I managed to find a bit of time this afternoon to head up to my studio to paint. I am trying to finish a few paintings and I had a lot of fun with the yellow in this one. It's not a color I use often and wow ... is it fun to paint with!
I did get a notice that my painting "Stuck Together" was selected for the National "Painting Only" Competition & Exhibition at the Pacific Art League in Palo Alto. Oh darn ... looks like I will need to head up to Palo Alto to see my painting displayed! (Palo alto is the town next to Stanford). Sounds like an important "business trip" in my near future!

Great painting! That yellow is just brilliant. Congrats on your show! Have fun at Stanford, hopefully there is more studying than partying going on:)
