"Light and Shadow"
8 x 10, oil on linen
This is my entry to the Southeastern Plein Air Festival's Quick Draw event... It was two hours long and I had a hard time picking my subject. I needed to be set up and ready to begin at 2:00, and at about 1:58 I finally pulled over and decided to paint a pretty, colorful home. As I was setting up the easel, I looked across the street and saw this home and the afternoon sun hitting the side of it, blinding me almost. Change of plans... paint it instead.
