8" x 10" Oil on panel
It has been three months since I posted anything on this blog. I have been working on some commissioned pieces and took a break to paint this fun little piece. I took a photo of this house ten years ago when I first moved back to Memphis from San Antonio. I had forgotten how beautiful springtime is in Memphis, and I went all over town snapping pictures of azaleas and dogwoods. I love the way the sunlight sparkles on this little cottage.
I took a painting class in May with Camille Przewodek, a fabulous plein air painter from California. I am thrilled that I was able to study under someone as artistically brilliant as Camille. Her workshop was called "Color Bootcamp", and I heard her voice in my head as I painted the sunlight.
