T'is Grace, who offers up eye candy each afternoon



Evening Prayer Brunswick Heads, 11 October, 2020, oil on canvas board, 25 X 20 cm

Two pictures from this past week, both with very different colour harmonies. Below, done before dusk while the other one painted just after sunset with a sky full of colours spread over it like a birthday cake.

They are different in another respect because the one above is closer to where I seem to be moving in this series. The one below is decidedly a work more related to where I have already been. But I love the light in it so I am not at all dissatisfied, and yet, I do see that it relates to the past.

Happily, none of this matters on a daily basis because I am always happy to keep working from a motif which changes appearance each day if not by the hour.

I have learned to accept that everything which Grace  offers up to me is a gift. My favourite painting which I tell people wanting to know, is the one I will make tomorrow. 

Though the work is done today, a painter's life is always filled with tomorrows.
