Thanksgiving Walk

oil on panel

I took pictures on Thanksgiving like a crazy woman.  I was lucky to capture this evocative moment, which seems to me to speak of larger things than a simple walk to work off the Thanksgiving dinner.


  1. Just wonderful. Love the sunlight in this painting. Very atmospheric effect.

  2. Such a simple walk...such a wonderful painting. Love your use of lights and darks to draw viewers in. Love this!

  3. I am in love with all your figure paintings. Well, I shouldn't say that, I should say ALL your paintings. There's something very contemplative about them that I love.

  4. Wow! The light is incredible. Such a strong painting :)

  5. Taryn, love the design of this painting, the use of light; and the topography of the girl descending.

    Truth is, I'm a little nervous for her with the three men converging quietly...
