IRON BED

24"x30" oil painting on canvas. Finished this morning. It was on yesterday but needed to be tweaked. This painting is a tonalist type painting. I really love the gray. It's such a foil for the lights and color. Tried to keep the color muted even tho the pinks and greens I used can be very bright.
I have another canvas on the easel and want to paint another bed. Loving painting rumples of fabric.

Darn silly Blogger is showing me your text but not your photo of the painting...I hate that! I know it must be lovely as I love your other paintings and I am sure this one is spectacular also!
Have a lovely Sunday evening and stay warm!

Oh Susan! Your paintings are sooo inspiring to me. I think this one is wonderful as well as the sea stones. Also, I love painted pairs! The shape and colors are so soft. I find Kathryn's work inspiring as well. It's gifted artists like you gals that make me want to do better and stay at it. Have a wonderful day!

First happy holidays to you and your family! May this next year be fun, profitable, and talent-expanding. Now on the talent end of things, you are doing fantastic work. I thought your beach rocks were a photograph at first sight!!! Ah, Susan is into realism!! But the rumpled bed and pears brought me back to, Susan, the impressionist painter with her lush brushwork and tantalizing colors. It always makes me happy when you slip back into the painting mode. The best of all worlds is that you LOVE everything you try. Sewing, mosaic, oil, why I even remember the small cards you did. So now what will 2012 bring, besides aging, LOL hugs, sharon
