A Bright Spot

A Bright Spot     12" x 9"     oil on linen panel
Whenever I have flowers in a room, it seems there is a bright spot that you can't deny when you walk in. This is particularly bright because of the late day sun streaming through the window and for me, because of the vase. It is Italian painted pottery which was a gift from my mother many years ago. I had a challenge keeping the values straight, but I happily I managed it and got the light and shadow 'story' just right.

Pin It
