The past two weeks have been busy with non-art activities. In April and May I am always occupied with yard work and garden planting, and I've also hosted two sets of visitors recently. The schedule has kept me out of the studio (and off the blog) but I enjoy this season too much to miss out on it.
This work, "Lights After Midnight," was produced earlier this year and is currently hanging in the exhibit "home/journeys." The image is based on a real house here in Raleigh, and is displayed with dramatic night lighting. I love playing with light and shadows in my work, and this painting incorporates both.
"Lights After Midnight." Oil on stretched canvas, 20 x 32 inches. Completed January 2010.
