Last Chapter

I have not vanished, but we all know how the holidays are! We've had a lovely Christmas and are still enjoying time off. But I have missed my painting. Today I took some time and painted while my husband put together some of the new shelving I am putting in the studio. One "resolution" underway. I am going to revamp that room and make it more functional and less of a dumping ground for all the old furniture from the house.

This was a lot of fun to paint as I focused just on the extreme light and dark of this woman sitting in a window reading. Her skin tones were marvelous and the light just heavenly. I painted it with thinner washes and bold strokes.

This may be my last painting to post this year. We shall see. Happy New Year early!
