Sunshine of Your Love


Click Here to Bid (6x6in.)

I had to paint this three times over to get what I wanted. I have a tendency to paint my shadows too dark for some reason, so each time they got a little lighter. I also had to write "click" over a couple of times, because "Lick Here to Bid" wasn't quite what I was shooting for.

The handling of the yellows is so perfect it took my breath away!

Carol, I saw that you had written a book and since I have a number of painting books thought I would just order your book from the library to read. I got into the third chapter and knew I had to own the book so I could reread it when ever I needed an artistic boost. So off I went to our big box book store that thankfully had one in stock. It is so informative and well written in a conversational style that I feel I almost know you. Congratulations on such a informative helpful book.

I love this-lovely shades of yellow. I think "shadowed yellows" are the hardest to get right but you nailed it.

I feel emotionally connected because I would give anything to feel the warm sunshine that you've brought into this painting. Ugh.....

Beautifully done!
