"Safely Rest" *SOLD*
Oil on Board
Well, here we are on the final day of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge. When Leslie Saeta first posted about this, I thought, "hmmmm, sounds fun, but no way I would commit to that!" I thought a bit more and then decided it was a great way to start the new year! Introduce some discipline! Challenge myself!
I started the new year off sick, but still got a painting in every day. It was a busy month, too, preparing for several shows and competitions, but like any commitment we make in life, there are easy days and hard days. You just stick to it and the results are always worth it.
So, this nightscape symbolizes the end of this little journey. I have always been totally enamored with the full moon. The way you can see shadows at night is just amazing. I love to go out to the country near my house when we have a full moon and look at the fields all lit up in the night. So when a friend challenged me to do a nightscape for the final painting, I knew immediately the way I wanted it to look. The title is from Taps....or as we called it in Girl Scouts, "Day is Done"!
Thanks for looking at my paintings! I appreciate it so much and the comments, too!
