Reluctant Acceptance

This is the 12 x 16 that came out of the plein air session with Stacy last weekend. I still feel like I'm standing there when I look at it. Done on "recycled" canvas that was so old, it had "brads" instead of staples along the edges. A little cleaning up a red underpainting, and it was as good as new. Also used a recycled frame that was in the same shape. Cleaned it up, gave it some flat black paint and a whole new life. This piece is, suitably, entered in the Recycled/Upcycled Show at the Rehoboth Art League, opening tonight.
