Winter Series #13
You need to study this one. The longer
I paint the more confident I become with
less literal subjects. This painting is awash
with light and shadow. Let your eyes
wander around, take in the view. This is a
close up of a wall. On the right are two
spikes imbedded into the top; I guess to
keep you from going over...
On the left is a post and then nice textured
bricks. The wall is blanketed with snow.
Beyond the wall is bare trees and
a grey sky. I just had fun with it today.
In honor of MLK day, Linda volunteered in
our local food pantry. I needed to stay home
and paint but took time to reflect on how I have
been so blessed to live in this time. My prayers
go out to our new leader and our nation.
