25. " Last Light" more progress

Here is some more progress.  I didn't get to paint much today - it was one of those days when being an architect interfered with being a painter.  I struggle with balancing these two careers.  But I am happy with the progress that I did make - and am trying to be thankful for being able to paint even a little today.....

24. Last Light 2 (Progress)

Based on my smaller painting "Last Light", I have started this much larger painting.  It is 24" x 36".  A lot of peopel have responded to my process photos - so I am trying to remember to step back and take photos at key junctures!

23. Last Light

"Last Light"

This is loosely based on a photo that I took after painting a barn in PA one evening.  I turned and saw this scene and it took my breath away!  The coolness of the shade in the foreground and the warmth of the fast-fading light.  I showed my husband the photo, and after I gushed, I could tell that he was non-plussed.  I then realized that I was responding to my memory of the moment and the scene more than the photo that i had.  So I tried to paint my memory - and I think that it worked!
