Leslie Saeta's 30 in 30

After Andrew Wyeth's painting "Her Room"
6x10 sketchbook watercolor

Leslie Saeta has thrown out another 30 paintings in 30 days challenge and I am jumping onto the bandwagon.
The challenge is to paint A LOT and I could use some motivation and some discipline in focusing.
This is my interpretation of an Andrew Wyeth painting, entitled 'Her Room'. There's something kind of lonely in the stark and melancholy mood of his paintings, set by his muted palette.  
It was a challenge in itself to try and match his color. 
As Leslie will remind everyone, this is about having fun and sharpening one's skills not about the count. So, I'm in.

HOORAY! You are IN! I love this, Mary. It shows the same mood and spirit as Andrew Wyeth's paintings have. I live not far from Wyeth Country and have seen his and "their" work many times and I can say I get the same feelings looking at your piece! Bravo and welcome back! Now, lets have some fun!

Yay! I'm glad you are in the challenge. What a start-the curtains, the door, the light, all of it is masterfully
done. You know how much I love your work.

I could live in that room....not now because I have to go out and buy a book about Wyeth.

Absolutely stunning piece, Mary! I am entranced by how gorgeously you painted those sheer curtains. The light reflections are worth of Vermeer. Amazing!
