oil on masonite
This is a painting I've wanted to do for a long time. I kept passing over it because.... well.....I didn't know if I could pull it off. The light is sweet, the walls have many tones, and the women is somewhat vague because she was a step back from the spotlights. It was a tough one. The result, I think, is a really nice warmth, especially with the gold tones of the walls and the reddish-brown of the floor. I love it.
This was a scene taken from my opening reception, at the 16 Patton Gallery in Asheville.
Have a great holiday weekend - I think I'll take a couple days off myself.
