I’m absolutely thrilled to have finished this painting, for the second time. The first time was a little 6″ x 6″ panel that I sold on DailyPaintworks, way too quickly and way too cheaply! I’ve missed it ever since. Some images stick with you for life, and this is one of them. I have to admit, it is not my own, and I so gratefully borrowed it with permission from HaoJanChang on Flickr. I fell in love with it when I saw it, and had to paint it immediately. It speaks to me of longing, of nostalgia, of yearning and mystery. Ever since it sold, I’ve wanted to do a larger version, and maybe keep it for myself. Unless there is someone out there who loves it more than me!
It’s oil on 16″ x 16″ cradled panel, an inch and a half thick. It shows some nice juicy brushstrokes, and the color is better in real life. I hope you love it!
