High Key

This is a high key painting done in normal room light. It presents a very different mood than a painting done with a directed light source and a dark background. The energy appears more positive and the feeling is warmer and sunnier. There is mystery in the copper reflections and  I always enjoy painting metal because of its unique qualities. Just what I need at this time in my life: a bit of sunshine.
