Weekly Oil Paintings
by Sister Maresa Lilley, SND

Susie’s Lamp

8×8″ oil on gessoed artist panel; not available for sale.



I have a sister-in-law who is also an artist. She does wonderful photography and pottery. This scene is of one of her recent shows that displayed both.

I try to remember what one painter taught: that painting is all about the light. If you can study the behavior of light on objects, you can better render reality. Easy to say; intense to pursue. I like to think that life is all about the light…of truth, goodness, beauty…
