Hey, long time no see!!

Welcome back, hope you had a good time off.

Funny that the Big Dipper is upside down, over here, ... or is it?

Rob, thank you so much for that comment, it really lifted my spirits. Sometimes it's hard to follow the Muse, or one's inner voice, because it seems like everyone has expectations about what I "should" be painting. I'm happiest being unpredictable-that's not what the galleries like, but in the long run it may be best if I'm true to my art.

Wonderful values and color Leslie. I like that your work is really about light

Tatieva said...

Merci Leslie...
Ton travail est absolument fantastique !
Je suis enchantée, émerveillée par ta peinture de jours de pluie. J'aime la pluie, cette mal-aimée de beaucoup, et ta façon de faire la sublime...
Un grand merci !
From France,
Tatieva

Thanks Stephen! Often a subject that wouldn't make people look twice can seem magical just because of the lighting. The lighting is usually what triggers an
"aha" moment for a painting!

Leslie Sealey said...

Merci pour vos commentaires, Tatieva!

I love your handling of color here, and there's just something so 'perfect' about cows resting under the night sky...

Leslie Sealey said...

Thanks! The cows just seemed to fit; we have lots of both (cows and trains) where I live.

Very neat. I like the train zooming by in the background. Can't see much of that big dipper though.
