Reflection **SOLD**

Hello everyone.
I'm happy with the way this painting turned out.
I took the photo for it awhile ago
and I kept looking at it and putting it aside
and later looking at it again
only to dismiss it once more. Finally, two days ago, it grabbed me
while deciding on the subject for my next painting.
When I felt it was finished and put my brush down
I decided that this was
a painting I had wanted to paint all my life.
This is a feeling that comes to me
often when things work out with a painting.
(When they don't...not so much.)
Oil on canvas 10 x 10.
I would like to draw your attention to the
Chilean artist Alex Perez.
Check out his amazing work at
Wonderful landscapes and seascapes
full of light and colour!

because we have not the sun.
