This was too much fun!  In the oil painting class I'm teaching, we have been working with split-complementary color schemes, so I decided to go with that.  Also, I was looking at the notes and pics I took at Kim English's workshop in September and was inspired to try to see my subject in a simpler way.  I look forward to working like this more.  Even though I've painted and drawn seriously for all of my adult life, sometimes I feel like I am just beginning to see!  It is one of the beauties of doing artwork, I think!

Wow! You're great! The figures are wonderful but... I think you're one of the best in painting the sun!

It looks like you had fun painting this and its also fun to look at. So much light moving around pulling me in all directions for a thorough exploration! The colors are wonderful, soft and alluring.

Vicki - I just took Kim English's workshop and its interesting how things he said or showed are sort of trickling out of my brain as I work at home now! This painting is really wonderful - such great light!
