#142 "Before the Rush", oil, 24" x 18"

I knew it had been a while since I posted, but it was shocking to see it has been over 3 months. I have been drawing and painting during this time, just not posting. I have also been overseeing the end of my Dad's life, remodeling a condo, and moving us permanently to wonderful Whidbey Island. As I write that I find it amazing that I have also been painting, and most certainly sketching. This painting is a study in value and monochromatic color scheme (yellows and golds) with a touch of the complement to give it a little punch. I love the tone and mood of this painting. It is a peaceful painting that I painted while in the middle of a storm of conflicting and difficult emotions. It was nice to have a place to go for some peace. The Ray for the Day is "Before the Rush".

Beautiful and serene. I particularly like how you captured the reflection on the table.
