Painting progress



I wasn't able to do any painting last week because Sylvia was sick. (This did not mean that I got much else done at home, sadly.) So this week I went out Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. I started working on the rocks, finally. I'm planning to keep the rocks kind of loose and low-contrast so that they (A) don't take me forever, and (B) don't distract from the rest of the painting. The rocks, after all, are not the important part. I still have to finish up that building down at the bottom that looks like a chapel, and add a few little details like bars on some of the windows, and more lamp posts. I'm so close to being done, but I probably won't be able to go out again till after Christmas.

I've been wondering how this was looking, so I had to track down your blog. I am absolutely in awe of your ability to create that ephemeral luminosity. The whole thing is amazing, but that is what makes you a true artist.

Wow.
