Strong composition and color. I also admire the confident handling of the paint. Good work.

Thanks to all for your comments.

The sale happened when we gathered our friends together for a going away party. (we are moving in two weeks)

My wife is a silversmith who designs and makes her own jewelry.

One of the gallery owners that sells her work had admired this painting for some time, and when it dawned that she would not be seeing it at visits anymore, she bought it!

A lucky break, but I'll take it.

The paints are Golden acrylic,

The red is pretty straight cadmium layered several times over a dark ground.

The light areas are over a white gesso, which heightens their value and reflects the light better.

In addition to this one, I may have a few cheaper pieces (4) to be sold to some friends!

good time without a watch
