Benediction

Benediction
30 x 40
Available at Hildt Galleries, Chicago


I made a video of a series of photos I took while painting this piece. Some of the photos were taken in less than perfect conditions and so have some glare and other issues, but I think its a fair representation of the process.

At first I wanted to say there is a lot of rigor here, but that is too harsh a statement. This beautiful painting is complete, masterful and mysterious. I cannot say enough abut it. Superb, Deborah.

Thank you Deborah for posting the video. I always find painting the sky within and around the trees the hardest part, yet you so skillfully create such a lovely painting of peace and beauty.
