First Painting Completed in 2013

Last weekend, I completed my first painting in 2013.  It was landscape with a figure - a young man or boy, rowing a canoe in a cold day.  The atmosphere was chilly, dark, but the background houses were somewhat bright and cheerful.  It was an interplay between cold and warmth, between suffocating black and iridescent paler hues.

The atmosphere I strove to achieve for this painting was a certain melancholy, solitude yet not tragic.  The black water actually shimmered and danced.  This a painting with hope, befitting for the beginning of a new year, after a year filled with events of personal sadness.
