Double Rainbow 6"x6" oil on canvas

Sometimes a scene will just blow me away and then when I try to paint it life gets complicated!  Sometimes, as an artist, I can infuse a painting, even one of mundane subject matter, with a sparkle and excitement.  But when painting a sensational scene like this, I feel like I just didn't put into it what I was feeling at the time.  I will study it for a while and think about it...maybe increase the contrast...change the colors...honestly I don't know what needs to be done.  Any suggestions?

  1. We're just working with paint and canvas afterall. Things like rainbows remind us that we're trying to capture light with tools that can fall short.
    I think your painting has a charm and a sense of light that is quite lovely.
