I have a beautiful milk glass table on my screened in porch and late in the day, the sunlight shines on it in a burst of warmth and brightness. One afternoon this past summer, I scattered peaches across the tabletop just at that time of day and stacked a few white plates as well. Then, the race was on to get the color, the shadows, the reflections ... the painting done before the sun moved and the magic was over. Painting at such a fast pace manifested a loose, almost abstract painting with thick application of the paint. I like what happened and am curious and excited to paint like this again.
