Monday Morning Painting


So I have some new workspace now for painting!  (Much thanks to Tim & Jamie Pickavance) I spent a few hours painting there this morning.  I love the window and the natural light.  Not sure if you can see those oranges on the orange tree, but I LOVE IT.  I am on the prowl for a decent easel, so I'm riggin' up those unpainted canvases for now.  

I stopped at this point on the piece, but Im thinking of adding in some bird silhouettes in the background or possibly the word "birdcage" in Hungarian (madárfütty) or in French (cage a oiseaux).  I am into stenciling and the imagery of words... 

This painting is for my friend, Heather (who lived in Hungary for a couple of years).  We were antique shopping a month or so ago and we saw a painting that she liked with an image of a chandelier... so Im sort of recreating the vintage look, but with a birdcage.
