238. Frosted Rolls

'Frosted Rolls'
6" x 6"
oil on gessoboard

Hi, guys!
It's been too long!
I don't think I mentioned it here on the blog, but I was injured in a car accident right before Thanksgiving, so I haven't felt up to painting for many weeks. Thankfully, I'm doing much better, and finally cleared out my painting corner last week, -- ahhh, it felt so good. :)
I mean, until I started painting and felt like I was learning how to do it all over again. ;)

Anyway, here's my first painting of 2016! When we were in Minnesota a couple of winters ago, I took lots of photos of these round bales on my family's farm. Just so lovely in the late afternoon sun. 
I've struggled with this scene for several days, -- make the shadows darker, make the shadows lighter, repeat, repeat. Haha. (I ended on 'make the shadows darker', btw.)

Oh, also, just wanted to remind you that I do have a handful of 2016 calendars left, purchase information is here. (Or click on the calendar tab in the menu above.)

Thanks for being patient with me and happy New Year!

Nora, what a clever title for this one!
I was sorry to hear about the car accident, and certainly hope you're feeling like getting back into the groove.
Your painting is lovely especially the different tones of the shadows.
I wish you a good journey on your recovery. I certainly look forward to seeing more paintings as you're ready! Take care!
