Southerly Gust

Southerly Gust 5x7 Oil on linen panel SOLD

I went into a frenzy of spring cleaning yesterday, having realized that it is now officially summer, AND it provided a procrastination opportunity as I thought about the subject for the day's painting. The white dresser cloths and a few curtains on the line provided the answer. It's been a number of years since I'd painted this view and I thought to dig up the old renditions to show you. Believe me when I say, this is livelier, looser and improved. I can't wait for the next sunny day to do the bedroom curtains!
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love to hear your thoughts.

Hmmmmm, this looks vaguely familiar.

But what I really wanted to mention is the blue of the white items. When I saw pictures of glaciers I always thought the blue was like the colors in this painting; shadows dancing on white. But glaciers really are blue. Like this. How amazing this painting could take me all the way to Alaska.
