Chincoteague, Late Afternoon - sold!



12"x12" oil on Ampersand's archival gessobord

"Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it." - Russel Baker

Well, Day 1 of painting yesterday, and 2 of my 3 were keepers. One was a scraper. I decided today that the one I did in the middle of the day, didn't deserve to see another day. But the other two, I'm so happy with. This one is a spot I have painted before, but I decided to paint in a square format this time. I wanted more sky in there, and as luck would have it, we had some very interesting skies yesterday! Really happy with the value contrasts on this one!

This one will also be in the Plein Air event here on Chincoteague Saturday evening!!

For more information regarding this painting, please contact me here!

Thanks sooo much Diane. This one felt good to paint. You know how some can be a struggle, and some can be a delight...and just make you feel good to have painted them? This was one of those happy ones!
