Morning Light

Did this one early Saturday morning. I've included a pic of my set-up and location. I've also included a pic of my bloody finger. ewww! Sorry about that. I was just laying in my sky when I went to wipe the palette knife off on a paper towel I was holding in my left hand. Well...I missed. I gripped with the finger and thumb and pulled the knife across the bend in my index finger. Looks a lot worse than it actually is.

You can see the painting might have suffered from the accident also. :) Total of about 45 minutes painting time on this one. Notice how I changed the blacktop road to dirt to keep the organic feel, and dropped the drive altogether.

9" x 12", o/c, palette knife

Ouch! Truly suffering for your art ;-)
The painting is fantastic. I really like the levels of space in this one.

Thanks Liz. There really wasn't a lot to paintin that spot, so I tried to make the best of it.
