The Raven, 6 x 6" oil on panel
I haven't painted much in the last three weeks. I had a lovely vacation in Charleston, South Carolina with my husband and then returned just in time to move my studio at The Second Floor Studios into another room, and then paint the entire space and put it together in time for Art Walk and our Holiday Open House the next day. I had exactly 3 1/2 days to accomplish this, and somehow pulled it together enough to make it presentable! There's still a lot of stuff to finish, like a second coat of paint on the woodwork and weatherproofing the windows now that it's colder, but I'm tackling that only a little bit each day in order to turn my attention back to the easel!
"The Raven" is the last little painting I did before I left for Charleston. I especially love the little bits of orange popping up around the edges. You can buy "The Raven" now for $80 plus $10 shipping, or you can visit my daily paintworks auction that begins on November 17th.
