Oil on canvas, 30x40
One of the great things about living in Ledyard, CT, was being near the Groton Reservoir. I painted it often, and in all seasons. Some of my very favorite paintings from the years we lived in Ledyard are of the reservoir - and this is one of them.
It is one of the first large paintings I did with a palette knife, and while it had some of the feeling I was hoping to communicate, it was lacking something - a little life, a little breadth, a little color? So I went back in and worked on it again, and this time, whatever was missing is there.
May We See Your Tree?
In Saturday's entry, I posted a photo of our Christmas tree. My friend Bonnie Brankey, a wonderful artist, sent me this photo of her tree. Could we share our trees, or our Hanukkah bushes, or our holiday-decorated pink flamingos - or whatever you decorate?
Please send a jpg to me at carrieBjacobson@gmail.com, and I'll post them here on the blog on Christmas Day.
