All on the Line

My painting this morning! .... this cold, cold March morning as I long for warm weather and the feeling of the sun and breezes giving cool relief... Back to reality, tho, I decided to paint this image of clothes on a line drying on that warm, breezy day. I love these kind of images reminding me of a slower pace to life, simplicity and just being. Hard to have those times in our day, but we need to work at carving that time out... Hope the feeling is conveyed in this peice!

Red Beach Hat 2

This is the second in my series of "Red Beach Hat" from images from St. Martin. This one is a bit tighter than the first. It was a little difficult to get interesting shadows and tones in the figure as it was flatter towards the sunlight. However, I took that as a challenge to "contrast" the figure myself thus rendering a tighter-looking depiction.

Red Beach Hat

I wanted to keep this loose and NOT about the identity of the subject (me). I wanted to play a bit with negative space here offsetting the figure to the left side and having the ocean and beach loosely depicted. I started this painting last Thursday when we were having our snow storm. I kept warm in my studio painting a warm scene! Fun!
