12 Days of Christmas---Favorite Paintings Count Down

"Days End"
18 x 24 egg tempera, SOLD
Counting down my favorites--this is number 10. It is an egg tempera, which is so interesting to do, layering the paint in thin layers. It is dusk and the farmer is deep in thought, perhaps about his cattle or his garden. The old basket beside him holds potatoes he has dug. This is a painting that calls for you to look at it a long time, studying the shapes, colors, light, etc. but also the subject matter. I hope you like it, too!
Our count down of favorites continues tomorrow!
