Persevering in a State of Rest
Persevering in a State of Rest / oil on linen panel / 18x24
Having spent about 3 sessions on this picture, I think I am done now. It was a lot of fun to compose and to paint and I have titled it "Persevering in a State of Rest". In the studio shot, which I included for perspective, you can see the wonderful overhead white LED lighting that we installed in my studio - there are 8 of those pot lights thoughtfully placed and, as a result, I have wonderful, shadow free lighting at any time of the day or night. My son visited from San Diego last week and while he was here he installed casters on my big easel and on my work table giving me much more flexibility when I work. I can't tell you how long I have wanted wheels on my easel so I can move it around as needed! I am happy now!
