Thirty in Thirty. Day Eighteen: Light, Dark & The New England Landscape…

Work in Progress – 16″ x 16″ – Oil and Oil Bar on Panel

It’s a bit odd to be working on a painting like this —one with such an obvious play of light— when the weather outside is making the studio so dark and grey that I can hardly see. Yes, I could turn on the lights –but with a piece like this, it could really mess things up. So, rather than drive myself crazy, I’m going to stop for the day.

The moody landscape and wintry New England weather provide great inspiration, but they aren’t always conducive to painting.

Today I’m listening to Nick Drake. It just seemed right. “Pink Moon” is one of my most favorite songs.
