In Sunlight 20" x 16" Oil

And now for something completely different, for me. I had a fancy for experimenting today, so I took a photo of my reflection in the television. I completely covered a canvas board with black, then wiped it off, pushed it around with my trusty tools, fingers, and added some blue, red and white until I emerged. I had wanted a painting more abstracted, less stark, but I'm happy for now, because it was such fun!
I started this painting this morning and took it along to the WA this afternoon, where I got a lot of questions and puzzled looks, and a comment from Mary, " I usually feel happy seeing what you have done, but not today". She has a fair point, I think I also prefer higher key work.
The cake today.......Penny you have to stop........was utterly delish! Cherry and almond! I had seconds and brought some home!

I think this is an amazing painting, reminds me of Francis Bacon, dramatic and surreal. Fantastic.

Carolann hit the nail on the head,a Bacon like painting, we artist folk like it.

It is very different for you Sharon, but I really like it! Has a surreal (to use Carolann's word) to it.
