split the difference...

split the difference
20" x 20" oil on linen

This painting was one of those ones that just came together like a dream.  Interestingly enough, I wasn't even sure what was going to happen when I put brush to canvas.  My mother-in-law died a week ago and with family obligations I hadn't had any time to paint.  I just felt like I needed a few hours of normalcy although I wasn't sure I could even focus.  I  brought out this canvas that I had started the week before.  Up on the easel it went, and I'm not saying it painted itself but something close to it.  It is a lovely thing when it happens.  The peace of paint :)
