But before winters grip took hold, I had the pleasure of working on a commissioned house portrait in the fall, and was able to add some colorful foliage into the composition. A beautiful lake location, sunlight, and shadows were all present to capture the essence of this lovely home.
A short time later, the subject matter of my next commission was a bright, warm, and well lived in kitchen. With much of my work focusing on the outside, I was delighted with the opportunity to paint an interior composition.
While only a snippet of a much larger area, I wanted to bring the viewer in for a closer look, not only at the focal point which is that magnificent AGA stove, but at the little things that make this a special place for the owner...including sunlight coming through those big open windows.
All weather complaining aside, I am fortunate to have plenty of projects to keep me busy as I look forward to warmer months ahead. As a matter of fact, I have a beach house portrait on my easel right now...so I'll be getting a glimpse of summer ahead of schedule!
