I have really enjoyed painting this one. Have you ever seen that light effect when the skies are dark but the sun comes through after heavy rain? That was what I was trying to ‘get’ with this painting!
I sketched out the basics awhile ago, and left it pinned to the studio wall to ‘think’ about it for awhile. I needed another painting for one of the 4 art shows I’ve entered between now and Easter! (I am such a glutton for punishment)! I finished it and framed it this afternoon!
