"Sunrise in the Rain"

6x6 oil on canvas panel
ok - so the rain is outside...not in the painting!! -once again - i got impatient and wanted to post this today - i need to get back to regular posting to get my juices flowing again - today was a day of taxes and framing (with just a little bit of painting near the end) so i was using both the left and the right sides of my brain - good for staying centered i think - in this piece i used the biggest brush i have to stay loose and threw in a bit of pallett knife as well. i entered a few pieces in some on-line competitions and am thinking about the hoosier salon and indiana heritage arts here locally in indiana. i'm thinking about a landscape piece for the heritage arts show and i've been doing so much figurative stuff lately that i need to flex my landscape muscles a bit to prepare. wish me luck!....p.s. - i may or may not rephotpgraph this when the water droplets have dried...depends on when it quits raining!


  1. I gotta tell you, I love the name of your blog, very creative! You sound like one very busy woman, so it's a good thing you have your blog to hold your feet to the fire. The color composition of this piece is very evocative of the moment. Stick with those big brushes, the result is very nice.

  2. thanks hope - i just added a link to your blog!
