Kissed by the Sun

Hi Guys
Well I've just had the most amazing week long workshop with Jacqueline Coates, Australian floral artist. I arrived back in town yesterday sooooo inspired and have so much more confidence in my ability. I'm concidering a series of works based on contrasts in light and hope to have the confidence to hold my first show within 6 months.

This is my first LARGE canvas at 40" x 40". Any C&Cs welcome
Note that there is some glare in the top right corner, which in life is nearly as dark as the bottom left.

Not at the moment Valri. I had to leave the Canvas out of town as it was too big to to travel home with me. This photo was taken quickly on the run. I won't get the canvas home for a few weeks yet unfortunately but will re photogprah it properly when it arrives.

I see I got my lefts are rights mixed again. DUH! I've always been hopeless with that! A major brain fart.

Thanks to all for looking in and the kind comments.
