Confidential Project

“L.G. Hotel”

oil on linen panel, 10″ x 8″
On December 10 I posted that I had been painting a confidential Christmas project. Now the cat can come from the bag. This was a painting for my daughter and her husband . . . the site of their wedding. It was a gift to them and I didn’t want to spill the beans until it was in their possession.
It now has an honored spot in their dining room where it is seen daily.
This was an interesting challenge. I had photographed the ‘campus’ there and found that the sun had nearly set. So, there was no shadow and light differences. I had to create it. Additionally, to bring some interest, I had to move some objects and add a few pieces of foliage to lead the eye. It took more than two days to get this one right . . . . .(if it is ever right!) 😉 . . . . . . . .there is always room to do better, isn’t there!
