Sunlight


"Sunlight"
12 x 12 x 3/4 inche, Oil on Canvas, Painted with Palette knife
Sometimes living gets hazy and dark - that's when a little sunlight brings me back to the center. Friends are my little sunlights. Music to paint by. A fresh tube of paint. My Pointer sisters (they are my dogs). My neighbor who carries my trash can out to the curb without asking. A handwritten letter in my mailbox. A smile. Daydreaming of a farmhouse to convert to an artist's haven. My favorite TV show, my battered copy of "Pride and Prejudice", a cup of coffee - especially the sinful kind like White Chocolate Mocha....Hearing someone say, "I love you".
What's your sunlight? That touch of yellow - cad yellow pale mixed with a little white - that's the sunlight in my painting.

Wow! I think this is one of your best landscapes yet. The purple background, the pop of sunlight on the ground. Fabulous!

I really love the purple in the background! It draws me in, and then I can really get into all the beautiful details.
My sunlight is a sipping some iced chai and reading my favorite books.
