"Spirit In The Sky"

5 x 7"
oil on masonite
sold

This new painting will be added to the Sylvan Gallery in Charleston - along with several more I'm currently working on. They're small, casual, intimate scenes - much like the Holy City itself. This view is looking down Meeting Street towards St. Michael's Church, lit up in the early morning sun.

How do you get the small patches of the light coming through the tree so crisp? Do you put the lighter color on top of the darker paint or do you leave a small area unpainted and then put in the highlight shape? Great painting.

I love your paintings. What makes you choose such small canvas sizes?

It amazes me what detail you're able to capture at 5"x7".
