In quietness and confidence ...

This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says:
Only in returning to me and resting in me will you be saved.
In quietness and confidence is your strength.

ISAIAH 30:15

oak tree oil painting • 24 x 30 inches • WORK IN PROGRESS

Not quite finished but it’s getting there! Today I worked on the dappled light on the driveway, adding deep shadows and highlights to the tree trunk, and defining the leafy areas and branches of the tree on the right by painting the negative spaces where the sky is peeking through.

It's going to be beautiful! I am fascinated by your painting process. I'd love to see you working in person.

I second Virginia's comment. Have you ever thought about doing a workshop?

I love your use of colour. Do you work with a large selection of colours and what would your palette consist of, thanks.
