For You

Horrible photo taken with the selfie mode of my phone (because its regular camera is broken) of a new or almost finished painting. This one was based on a daytime photograph of the Truckee River, I think! These nighttime fires with water are my most difficult paintings because so much is up to my imagination - the fire is completely made up, and yet I'm trying to make a believable space and quality of light. Plus:  the reflections on the pond. But people do love that sexy teal water. I'll be doing a small series of them and put them up on my little fires in the woods page.
Anyway, sorry I'm late again and I'll try to check in again on the 15th. Why not write a comment? (Be nice, I've had a hard day).
