Thursday!

I did this painting from life a few years ago. She was lit from above, sort of like with an interrogation light bulb. I resurrected it because our art discussion group had a topic about old paintings. To see what everyone else brought go HERE

Thanks to everyone for coming to the Lane Gallery Reception. It was great to see you.. So much fun (red dots too)! Photos below, direct link HERE  (Thanks, David for the photos)!

Celeste, you are always so gorgeous, just like your mom. This painting is brilliant and I love the drama of the overhead lighting!

Like that painting (the lighting does look like the interrogation light source)
