"Centered"

"Centered"
Oil on Panel
11x14

Centered

When a friend and I took a trip to Cape Cod to paint, a great stop was Wellfleet. We found a perfect spot next to a building with shade and a great view! I found myself carefully positioning "Mom" exactly under the church steeple in the center of the picture. Later looking at it, I realized that this painting emphasizes Mom's central love in life besides her family: her church. The art I create is always zeroing in on the truth and I can usually only read it later.

Painting in Wellfleet

I am definitely starting to feel the itch of wanting to go 
to the Cape and paint again!
