I haven’t made a painting this big for a while… It was nice pulling out the thick, shiny oils and blowing up this moment that I caught in a sketch a few weeks ago. I could never have made this from a photograph… one thing that has really dawned on me this year is that our eyes are so much more sensitive to a wide range of color and value than a camera. It is good to know that some things are still best done the old fashioned way.

Thanks Donna! I hope you are feeling strong and on the mend.
I like the ” old fashion way” !
I want to say surreal but I am not sure that is the right choice of a word. The painting to me looks dreamlike, like a different planet.
