Grey Day

I know it's been a while since I posted, but I put down my paint brush this summer and concentrated on writing. I took a glorious trip up the East coast and many many stops along the way visiting places I had not seen before. During my journey I got to visit many galleries as well as stopping into the Metropolitan Museum of Art, always a treat.
So now I am back at my studio and trying to integrate some of the visual sensations I experienced along the way. I am still very interested in capturing mood. In this painting called Grey Day it is not just the overall somber lighting that tells a story, but I also choose the lone tree in the foreground to amplify the feeling of moments of reflection.
Enough with the gibberish, basically I am still working on translating the beauty of the surrounding water and sky to my viewer. This oil painting is 14" x 18" and sells for $399
