TA - DA!

"San Geronimo Whitewash"
12x24 inch oil on canvas
SOLD

I normally photograph my paintings outside but we have had rain all day so I couldn't. I was anxious to get it posted on the blog so I went ahead and took this photo - it has a spot of glare that I couldn't avoid but I wanted you all to see it anyway . As soon as I get a chance I'll re-shoot it and post a better pic -

I especially love the clouds and the deep blue of the sky. It's a wonderful work, congratulations!

Janelle Goodwin said...

Hi Cara, So glad you're back at the easel. This paintng is amazing. Those CLOUDS are so beautiful. The viewer could get lost in them! You're a talented painter, Cara. Please keep sharing with us!

Ron Morrison said...

Looks like a painting to me...looks good!

Cara Dawn Romero said...

Paulo - Thanks for visiting my site and for your comment.

Janelle - It felt so good to be painting, I wish I had more time and energy to do even more. I really like doing clouds, I could easily paint nothing but clouds...

Ron - it does look a little like a painting doesn't it? If not this would be a good place to put one...

Dar Presto said...

I love those clouds. They reiterate the shape of the white walls, so the composition keeps moving upward into that dreamy sky. Excellent.
My word verification is 'besso,' so kisses to you!

Cara Dawn Romero said...

Dar - Thank you! I'd like to say that I am very clever when it comes to composition but the truth is - it just looks right so I went with it -

Gerald Schwartz said...

Cara Dawn Romero said...

Gerald - Thank you so much - I appreciate all your comments.

As the picture was downloading and all I could see was the top of the clouds, I was telling myself, "this has got to be a photograph" I was amazed to see they weren't. I'll have to agree with the other comments.

Ta da is right - beautiful clouds!

Good to have you back in action.

Say if you are riding motorcycles you will be needing a tattoo. I was thinking a little heart with I LOVE BJ. Just a little one doesn't have to go all the way across your back.

Cara Dawn Romero said...

Debbie - Thanks for visiting. I stopped my your site and loved your work.

Cara Dawn Romero said...

Bill - thanks for the comment and about the tattoo....

http://www.onpainting.wordpress.com said...

Great to see the Art along with the story.

Don't lose heart. All artists have moments of doubt and that is normal and taking " breaks" is often times a good thing.

Just stopped by to say hi. Hope your day is going well.

Cara Dawn Romero said...

What? No lectures or barking? Bill, what am I to think?

http://www.onpainting.wordpress.com said...

For Christ's sake, paint SOMETHING! I'm getting bored. Entertain me with a little piece. Paint an olive or single grape or Mason DOT (singular).

Cara Dawn Romero said...

Bill - what would I do without you?

Silver said...

It's cool!

I read through your earlier posts - abt "reentering your grief again.." ok, that i can relate.. these grief thing kinda hunts you down.

Cara Dawn Romero said...

Silver -thanks for visiting and for your comment. You're right, it find you at the most unexpected moments.

Mary Sheehan Winn said...

I like it alot. Great structure and, can I say, Heavenly clouds?

Cara Dawn Romero said...

Thanks Mary!

A.Decker said...

I don't like using 'gushy' words, but these clouds and the way you present them: Gorgeous!

And the glare--I had to enlarge the pic to even notice it.

Very good work.

Cara Dawn Romero said...

Mr. Decker - thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I appreciate the encouragment.
