Standing By Mom
12 by 24" original oil on canvas with sides painted.
It was so good to get back to painting today after a time away in Lynchburg catching up with a dear college friend. We reminisced and laughed and at times it seemed like it was just yesterday that we walked to class together. I came back and saw this mother and baby calf that I started long before I moved here to the beach and with my refreshed eyes, I decided to bring them to life! I love those transparent oils and the light I am able to capture using them. Hope your summer is going well so far. It was good to get a bit of relief from the extreme heat of the last week. I forgot to tell Andrew to water my plants so they were looking pretty stressed but I had a few cucumbers!! It is amazing how delicious they are when you grow them yourself! Thank you for checking in with me!
