I've been traveling with family for a couple of weeks but managed to do this painting before I left.
I hope to get some new pieces done right away based on some of the beautiful spots I visited. Please stay tuned here at my blog in the coming weeks to see them.
Challenge group member Mark Adams picked our puzzler this month and named "Chiaroscuro" for us to paint. The study above is my response.
I love chiaroscuro effects and many of my favorite paintings are based on this lighting technique.
What fun interpretations of the theme everyone did this month! They are all so lovely and I hope you enjoy them.

Welcome to my Art Blog! I paint or draw most weekdays and sometimes finish a painting a day. I fondly call them my "Postcards from Paradise" because it's such a beautiful place the Lord made here for us.
