12x24" oil on board

It looks like it might be a while until I'm able to post the painting I'm really happy with so I actually sat down and painted today! Since I've been working on the commission, which ended up being two different paintings from the same reference, it feels as though I haven't gotten anything done. Silly because I have, but nothing I can post.

Himself is home on vaycay, the clean-up from the storm is almost complete, and my brother-in-law, who drove down for a quick visit/jam session, along with his daughter Claire, have gone home.  Time to relax with some wine, have a nice listen to what we played and enjoy the holiday weekend.

Thank you so much for your good wishes for our having made it safely through the storm, we appreciate them so much. So many are still without power, it's just amazing how much damage was done!

Have a wonderful weekend, a great Labor Day and thanks so much for dropping by.


  1. Terrific painting, the title goes fabulously with it! I absolutely love a monochromatic scheme and there is such beauty in those folds. So glad you came out of the storm safely and with little damage. Have the best weekend:)

  2. It's time for this long awaited weekend,,, to give us all time to regroup.. It is for us.

    Happy weekend

  3. How do you do it, Suz? You've managed to make rumpled sheets look so very inviting!! Glad you have some down time with your husband to look forward to (his vacation).

  4. Who Knew how great Gray Skies could actually be? Beautiful, simple, elegance,.. Miss Suzanne ! Lovely, as usual !

  5. My Gunkie,
    It sounds like you have a well-deserved easy Labor Day weekend planned. Suck the absolute marrow out of it! :}

  6. Fantastic Suzanne - It makes me want to go back to some realism - and yet for some reason I find my self battling with watercolour landscapes once again - I am JUST HIDEOUS at them! Surely the time WILL come when the penny drops and I finally produce a nice one! Good luck with the commission! :0)

  7. Fascinating work.
    It has been delightful
    to visit your gallery.
    Good Creations

  8. painting fabric is something which absorbs me and it isn't easy to get it right but you have balanced the values so well in this one!

  9. Glad you are ok. The painting gray skies is of course beautiful.

  10. Gorgeous soft color! Love the lights and darks. Just saw you had the link for Carol and David also:) Glad to see so many helping out our fellow artists.

  11. I really like this painting. Soft, quiet, understated.
