One Summer Morning


One Summer Morning - oil 6 x 5
Sold

The other morning I was out early. We had rain the night before and there were still storms to the west where the sky was a dark blue grey. In the east, where the sun was coming up, the sky had an eerie greenish cast that bathed the landscape in a veil of light I had never seen before. It felt like the world was on the cusp of changing into something else- I know that sounds a little over the top- but there it is.

This is the first small painting I've done in quite a while-it was such a pleasure to do after working on larger pieces for weeks.

I love your description of the light effect. This is another really lovely piece.

Cooper Dragonette said...

I agree with Bill. Another terrific painting Deborah. The composition of light and dark areas leads you right through the piece.

Deborah Paris said...

Thank you Bill and Cooper. It was worth getting up that early to see that light!

Hi Deborah,
absolutely charming little painting - no wonder it was gone so quickly.
Sometimes you just find such a special aura at times one cannot really describe. So I know exactly what you are talking about - not over the top at all...

Greetings from Munich,
Petra

Hi Petra. Thank you-I am glad you like the piece and that you understood what I was getting at. It really was, as Emerson said, a little moment of transcendence

Beautiful.

Tracy said...

Gorgeous color. I am envious that you got to see that AND got to paint it.

Deborah Paris said...

Thank you Casey. I really enjoyed your post on the Wolf Kahn interview. I've read it several times now and get something new each time.

Thanks Tracy and congrats on your press mention for AAF!

Lovely piece Deborah. So summery. I'm not at all surprised to see it's sold.

Summery paintings make me feel good - as pointed out on my blog last Friday.

Thanks Katherine-glad you like it!

You SO nailed this in as few brush strokes as possible. Simple but dramatic.
