I took the reference photo for this painting several years ago thinking I would do it in watercolour. The recent pandemic has caused the postponement of an oil painting class I was taking from Ron Hayes at ArtCan Gallery. Unable to work on the one there I decided to try this one in oils in my home studio to pass the time.
It’s not entirely keeping me from obsessing about the train wreck unfolding across the globe but it helps. I hope it brings you a moment of peace. Wishing a speedy recovery to all who are sick and please everyone stay safe.
