Throw Pillow

Watercolor on archival paper, 6" x 6"
$125.00 + $6.00 shipping in US.
SOLD

Took a break from the studio for lunch, fixed myself a sandwich, sat down in the living room and turned on the TV. Nothing on. Then I started noticing the way the light caught the top of the throw pillow on the love seat. Aha! Inspiration can strike when you least expect it.

Hi Don

Beautiful light! Do check out the work of Maine painter, Connie Hayes, especially her interiors. Her color is punched up waaaay more than yours, but I think that you'll appreciate her work!

Happy Spring!

First thing that came to mind seeing this, your earlier one as well...a dog was, "Aaahh...a painter!"

Going thru blogs this morning from the powerguide list...and just wanted to say, nice work! Keep it up!

Beautiful, Don, the light is astounding. Makes me want to lie down for a nap.

Once again the master shows us his Wyeth-like genius in glorifying the commonplace and his treatment of light. How beautiful!

A good turn of events. Happy that nothing was worth watching on the tube.

Don Gray said...

All those channels and nothing to watch--typical, huh? Thanks, Suzanne.

A beauty Don.. thought it was an oil at first. Masterfully done and a watercolor triumph.

Don Gray said...

Whether you paint them or not, it's the noticing that's important.
Thanks, Dixie.

Don Gray said...

Bill, can't thank you enough. Love your latest painting.
