This is the completed version of the painting.
I simplified the composition and light source.  I hope this brings peace and healing to those who live with it.

I made this study from a still life set-up of ceremonial Shabbat objects with a window sunset. This was to try to work out the painting problems before creating a large commisioned piece. I had compositional problems, focal point problems and problems with four light sources to work out. I looked at a lot of Bonnard paintings to try to understand how he approached painting the interior and exterior view. I will show you the painting in my next post.
