Soliloquy, Southwest Florida


Just finished this painting. I wanted to convey a mood and feeling of place. It is in Cape Coral on the Southwest coast of Florida very near to where I used to live. I combined three reference photos for this painting and wanted to keep a tonal quality. When finished with the basic painting I put a thin glaze of yellow over the entire piece in keeping with the warmth. It is 14 x 18" oil on canvas.

No takers yet on the greyhound painting. But I did forget to add my email address: canineart@windstream.net
