A Late Summer Morning

A Late Summer Morning
12x16" watercolor

I'm finding it difficult to finish paintings any more - but here is one that has taken me a little while to do. The lowering light situation afforded by the season has really been noticeable this year. We put up some new bamboo blinds in the living room and it has made some dramatic changes in our living space. I just couldn't help but do this image as I captured it with my camera a few weeks back.

This is especially wonderful! Brings back memories with our own daughter, and now with 2 granddaughters.

I remember painting and how long it takes to do sometimes...but it's always worth it in the end. This is some great work!
