Day 14: Breathing Space

Breathing Space, 5"x7", oil on panel, © 2017 R.L. Delight

Today was one of those time crunch days. Grocery shopping in the morning, painting as fast as I can, then a quick dinner and out to a community event. As much as my introverted soul loves being alone in the studio or out painting on the beach (usually up on the rocks behind a driftwood pile), I feel it is also important to participate now and then in my community.

This is more or less finished but I know that I will be refining a few things. The waves behind are still sort of roughed in. As I was looking at the painting after I returned home this evening, I thought I would make a few other changes as well.
This painting is partly from a still life set up and partly from imagination. The idea for this came to me while struggling with yesterday's subject. It is a start on an idea I have had for a while.

It is late for me and I need to go rest for tomorrow. I close with a picture of the still life set up.
Hope you enjoy a breathing space of your own!
