"Lone Lightbulb" - SOLD

One trick I talk about in my workshops for escaping the "floating object" trap esp. in these daily paintings - is to show, accurately, how the object interacts with it's environment. For example, this lightbulb casts a specific shaped shadow, and depending on the angle I view it from, and the angle of the light, it is slightly different. I really paid a lot of attention to this in the drawing phase of this painting and got it just right before I started painting.
A quick reminder, I have 2 workshops coming up this summer with some spots open: both 5-days, one in San Antonio at the Coppini, July 6-10 (email Donna Bland); the other in Canada near Red Deer (Alberta), August 10-14 (email me). Thanks!
