I shot this picture with my iphone while walking to pick up my daughter on a snowy evening after 20" of snow blanketed our town. I loved the glow of the lights and the whiteness of the snow against the dark house. I imagine a warm fire burning in the fireplace inside!
I am very proud of this tiny painting!

I am finally finding a rhythm with my work, and now we have a blizzard coming our way! Shoveling tomorrow, painting after that!
This is the first stage of the next house painting in the tattooing series. I begin with a charcoal drawing to which I then apply a light oil turpentine wash. This step sets the tone for the piece.
I have had several requests for more of these, so here I go! This one is oil on canvas- 8x10".
More to come...

The skin of this tangerine was as red as the painting indicates- beautiful!
I follow a blog by the artist Jullian Merrow-Smith- www.shiftinglight.com. He never ceases to inspire me. This painting is directly influenced by his recent orange paintings.
