This is a painting from a photograph I took from my trip to Charleston. I had lunch with my husband and friends at 82 Queen the first day. Quaint place with great food. We were eating an early lunch and had a whole room to ourselves. I noticed the beautiful light coming through the window and hitting the glasses on the corner table. This is painted on an 11 x 14" linen canvas.
Finally got to paint again after several days absence. Moved my son's things to Oklahoma City this weekend. No quick trip. Eleven hours turned into longer because I had to stop and take pictures. He is one of my recent college grads. He got a job with a construction company based in Birmingham that does jobs all over the states. Will be in Oklahoma for 8 months building a hospital. Proud of him.SOLD

What a beautiful painting! The light on the glasses and on the tabletop is captivating. All the muted tones in the other part of the painting make the light the focal point. Really nice!ReplyDelete
What beautiful capturing of the light in the glasses and table top. so well done!ReplyDelete
Great light and focal point on the glasses and table top. Thought this was the son that was going to China for a year's internship...but hey, Oklahoma City is in our neighborhood. You need to come back here for a workshop!ReplyDelete
Great job in capturing the light and the glasses are beautifully painted!ReplyDelete
Absolutely beautiful, Carol. You captured the light so well. That visit to Charleston paid off!ReplyDelete
I love this one. Makes me want to sit down and enjoy! You captured the light so well. Love the glasses! Glad you had a good trip and are home safe-Take care.
Okay I am ready to eat there! Lovely!ReplyDelete
You really captured the light so well. I love the setting and you really did an awesome job on the glasses. Love your style. So are you an empty nester now?ReplyDelete
Thanks everybody for your nice comments.ReplyDelete
Ann, Ben was going to spend a year in china with a company but changed plans after getting a job offer from this company.
Debbie, I am kind of an empty nester. My youngest son is a sophomore in college.
The light on this is spectacular! Great job!ReplyDelete
I love the light from this window scene. It is very captivating. You have done some amazing figure paintings. Looks like you learned a lot. It must have been a great class, lucky you!ReplyDelete
Love the warm glowing light throughout the painting. The reflection in the window is an added treat.ReplyDelete
Très belle ambiance que celle de ce nouveau tableau que j'admire en ce moment.ReplyDelete
La lumière illumine et renvoie un environnement de bonne humeur. Je suis certaine qu'il doit faire bon de passer un moment dans cet établissement... les verres remplis d'un bon vin et en excellente compagnie...
J'aime votre touche et la sensibilité avec laquelle vous avez traité ce sujet et l'ensemble de vos sujets.
Oh Carol... this is just beautiful! I love, love, love it!!ReplyDelete
