Letting It Rest

11" x 14"

I think I'm just about done with this one.  I'm going to let it rest for a little while and see what needs to be tweaked.  I know there are a couple areas that need a little more time.  But for the most part I think it's done.  Personally I like the way the sun bleaches out the bottom right, so hopefully it's not too disturbing to folks, however I promise I will do something with that pink "arrow" pointing to the bottom of the page.  YEOW!

I had intended to do my "quick" 1-hour painting today, but unfortunately one of the dogs got into a little bit of a mess today that required my immediate and prolonged attention . . . I will spare you the gross details.  Aaaahhh . . . gotta love `em!  :)


  1. Interesting painting, a real play with shadows.
    Keep up the great work.

  2. Another beauty, Kara. And boy, do I know about dogs and messes! We have two, and no one woke up early on Saturday to let them out! Fill in the details!

    1. Gaaaah! Oh boy . . . I feel your pain Virginia! :)

  3. The colors sing in this one, and again, you nailed the value patterns! (I know because I looked through a piece of red plastic film, ha!) I like that you left the sun-drenched corner on the lower right side... It works well for the busy composition, leaving a relief point for the eye. Every painting needs a quiet area to let the eyes rest. I need to remember this in my next painting...
