THE BED

36" x 48" This is the huge canvas that I talked about waiting for me back at the studio yesterday. This is Tonal ism. Muted color, soft tones and values. I love Tonal ism. For someone who loves lots of color it isn't easy to achieve a soft toned painting using earth colors. I keep working at it because I find it restful and comfortable to look at. It's a movement that in it's earliest days came out of the Barbizon school in France 1880-1910
