Serene Sky


As you have seen from my posts and art slideshow, I love color, vivid, vibrant bursts of it. Sometimes though I need a little serenity and calm. This oil painting ...just finished! I will create another similar in a larger size, and donate this one to a fundraiser for St. Thomas Aquinas High School It is 18 x 22 and I picture a fairly simple silver gilded frame around it although it could go with an ornate frame for a very traditional setting.

Do you paint from photos or plein air?
A silver frame would be lovely. Your painting will bring the buyer and the fundraiser a special touch.
I donate too, and recently met a sweet lady who told me how thrilled she was with the painting that I donated. Good for you to share your talents, which will bring you good karma!

Thank you! I paint from photos, my head, and design tear sheets. Often a work of art will turn out completely different from the photo or inspiration it started from! I think you are so right about giving, it does come back in unexpected ways.
