West Light Daisies

"West Light Daisies"
12 x 12 inches, oil on canvas

Here is a simple still life, much more about the effect of light on the objects than the objects themselves. I loved exploring the translucencies of the turquoise cup and the flower petals, and the gorgeous shadow and light patterns on the tabletop. In other words, I wanted to paint that window light. The things I set up in the light were almost incidental.

For those in the Seattle area: I'm going to be at Brackenwood Gallery on Whidbey Island, Saturday, August 15th, for an "Artist's Salon," aka, a painting demonstration and reception. Join me if you can, or follow my adventures on Facebook and Instagram!
