This morning, Dec. 12, I finished the painting partially shown in the previous
"wall" post: December Day.
The title of this one is: SMALL BEGINNINGS, a reference to how the smallest, most insignificant looking bits of growth (the green bits) confirm that life is irrepressible.
The media on this work is a combination of coffee and acrylic, well sealed with a spray fixative. There is something about the richness of instant coffee on a canvas that I love, and coffee is essential in this painting.

Barbara this is simply exquisite. Absolutely exquisite. I love the turbulence I welcome the calm. Your use of light in this echoes what the old masters did: Make it work of you. Can't quite say enough about this one.
