"More Possibilities Open"

Oil on Mat board

To purchase, email me with the title in the subject line.

This piece evolved in an interesting way. I added and wiped away paint so many times, that I had covered most of the surface with a mid-range tone. I was able to then add in darks and lights, so the figure seemed to almost "emerge" from the background color. Another challenge in this piece was to try to create a sense of place without putting all the background details in. I do like that she is sort of glowing there in the midst of the darkness.
