A Commisoned Painting

A monk in the Woods

My good Friend John Cook asked me to paint this picture for him in 2013 – A year later I was able to fulfill the request!

I was pleased with the result – sometimes it just takes a spark of an idea about how to start a painting!  In this case it was the underpainting, I started with yellow and let it shine through the green to help create the atmosphere of light in the forest.
