"Looking For The Light" -Sold

This painting is 8" x 6" acrylic on a canvas panel. I worked on four small paintings today and finished two of them for sure. This is one. There is gold paint in this one. Maybe it's the season, I seem to bring out the gold this time of year.

This little painting was scanned into my computer as opposed to using the camera. I'm sitting here working on an image I captured with my camera and having trouble making sure the colors are right and ah hah! Janett, try that new scanner! Oh my, like the Staples ad "that was easy". Now I understand why Myra was keen on using a scanner, it's so good at capturing the real colors!  ....wow....

More tomorrow.... thanks Myra...

this is great! love the colors and textures! you make me want to use my acrylics! that video you told me about was fantastic . . . the artist makes you feel as if you can whip out a big brush and paint a beautiful painting . . . i will have to try it and see if it's as easy as he makes it seem! can't wait to see your other paintings!!

Well, they do look like they are looking for the light! Great focal point in center there. Nice colors.

Thank you all my friends!
What is that quote from Robert Henri ? "Your style is the way you talk in paint."
Thanks for listening. : )

I am so with you on the scanner thing. Scanners can need their white balance adjusted too, but since the environment (between the glass and the artwork) is so controlled, it's much more likely to be right. If only it didn't take oil paintings so long to dry! Instant gratification, you know. Love all these bright paintings, Janett!
