We had a pretty loud lightning and hail storm on Lake Pend Oreille yesterday. A little bit of excitement as winter slowly gives up the ghost.
It struck me when I walked into my studio this morning that my current painting feels very much like a ghost. I have it on my table easel and it seems to hover on the table.
This painting is almost a study in subtlety. The color and values easing into one another. This kind of painting seems difficult to capture digitally but for now here is an iPhone version.
This was a small painting I did after doing a lot of large expressive paintings with similar color and value. This was much more realistic. It’s a recent relic, the subject over shadowed the paint. Still it has it’s charms!
