Evening Repose

- by Thaneeya McArdle

This week's theme: Father Figures

As we will celebrate Father's Day on Sunday, June 20th, Art Of The Day is taking this week to honour all the fathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers, and men that have meant so much to so many of us.

Happy Father's Day!

-Melissa Morton


Art: Evening Repose by Artist Thaneeya McArdle
This painting was done directly from a photograph taken at my father's house. The evening sun was shining directly through the open window on the left, bathing the left side of the rocking chair in a bright light. Parts of the straw hat and watermelon were also aglow with sunlight, so I left these areas white to be true to photographic form. This painting emits the inner serenity of one who works with the land as a farmer or gardener.
