New Oil Painting, "Philly Airport"

Returning home last year from a conference, I was sitting in the airport in Philadelphia wolfing down a veggie wrap of some sort. As I turned around to throw the wrapper in the garbage can, I saw this! In my haste and hunger, I almost missed the most magnificent sunset I may have ever seen. I can remember standing there, completely in awe. My first thought was "Thank you."

Your work is stunning! I am excited to explore your blog and website further. And thank you for the encouraging words regarding my personal and artistic journey. I am both thrilled and scared to death of it's possibilities. The sense of community and shared energy that I've experienced, especially surrounding my blog, has been astounding. The human connection is invaluable. ~Sara Moriarty

Peggi,

This is an emotive spectacular scene which I think is great!

Thank you, Sara, Manon, Melissa & Robin,
I don't think I've painted anything that is not human or animal in the past several years! I've heard from several portrait painters, though, that it is important to paint more than portraits if you want to get better at portraiture. I scratched my head when I first heard that, but I see that it makes sense. When you force yourself out of a comfortable place, that's when you grow.

Thanks again Peggi for paying a visit to our blog, and leaving a comment. I visited your blog to review your latest posts and continue to admire your work. Really like the Philly Airport. Will share with you at some point my flying into Los Angeles the night that the Rodney King riots erupted, and I looked out the window to find "clouds darker than I had become accustomed to seeing," stemming from the fires burning below. Fascinating sight, although an unfortunate situation.

I'll comment on the political commentator issue on my blog. Thanks again for the visit.
