Cozy Up

The hardest part of this painting was the rim of the clear glass plate. In reality it is a bright and very distinct hard line. I had to balance it with value and break it up so it didn't dominate the painting.  Today was a beautiful rainy day. Monsoon like. I spent the day in the studio and later this evening I picked up my Sister and my Mama on the way to a family party at my niece's house, where we turned on the festival lighting aka Christmas Lights :D and had a great time!

I love the idea of festive lights---I could always find something to be festive about, and I have a small but recognizable affinity to anything that glitters.
which brings me to this translucent painting. I so admire your ability.

Good idea to break up the hard white line, and you did it with such pretty color! Ellipses. The bane of my existence. I so wish you were here, girlfriend - SOON! So happy you had a festive evening!

You did an excellent job with all of it, but the rim is my favorite part. You made a difficult task look easy!

This piece starts with solid draftsmanship and composition- good perspective, cropping, and depth of field. Then color and brushwork reveal playful abstraction and an engaging liveliness. I love it!
