Blue Monday, 10" x 10", oil on deep cradled gessoboard

A beautiful morning and this shell fisherman brought his little boat out right in front of me. I didn't have to exaggerate the colors. Perhaps he may consider his work a grind but it created a few nice work days for me! This piece is the first larger one at 10" X 10", and took longer to do than the 6 x 6's, but the colors were so compelling that I felt it deserved a bigger showcase. Also I painted this on a cradled board so there isn't necessarily a need to frame.

The cradle is painted a neutral grey although it does look black here.
