View from the Alley

Greetings!! It has been a long time since I last posted. We have been dealing with a medical crises in our family which is still ongoing. I apologize to all who have been wanting to see current work from me.

This painting won 1st Place in the Quick Draw event at Plein Air Camp Hill last week. I normally don't paint alleys but I must say they have always held a certain charm for me. This large house intrigued me with its large simple shapes and play of light and shadows. Getting the values correct was a challenge at first and I almost gave up after the first half hour. But persistence paid off and I was pleased with the final results.

It was so neat to see this painting - so unlike your typical subjects and yet so clearly a Tako.
We were glad to see you at the festival. Your family remains in our daily prayers. Pax et bonum
