"Mid-Summer Beauties" - Oil - 12" x 9"




















I'm really excited about this one. The shadows were a challenge but a lot of fun to do because of the many colors. I created them with a series of transparent glazes which I felt would keep them from looking heavy. The shadow from the basket photographed lighter than it it really is. I did some tweaking but still did not get it right so I guess I'll be taking more pictures.

Anyway, I think this is my favorite piece. I did paint over my name though. I'd signed in the upper right hand corner but, after seeing it on the computer, didn't like the way it looked which means I'm going to have to sign it again...somewhere more pleasing.

This is beautiful and the shadow is the best part. I will just watch you and learn.

Very beautiful Linda! I've said it before and will again. . . you paint like you've been doing oils for years and years and years! I remember when you had just started oils not too long ago and look atcha now!
