New painting progress

I've been working diligently on the kitchen painting, but I think it is time to step back from it and work on something else. This is a painting I started back in September and put on the back-burner until now. It measures 28"x 35" and this is what it looks like after 4 or 5 sittings. The room was dark and my canvas was poorly lit, which explains some of its current value and color issues. I hope to remedy these things in the studio.

This is so different from what you normally do, it's so intensely colorful! I love it! Beautiful painting, Danny!

Nice saturated colors! I get a feeling from this painting that the person is trying to keep the light out by blocking it with blinds and shades, but the light is relentless at creeping in and is determined to bounce around the room. It's weird, almost like the light is another character interacting with the lying figure. I don't know if that is what you were going for, but that's what I got out of it.

Thanks guys.

Rendez - Spot on interpretation. It's also about how unnatural it is to sleep in the middle of the day. My girlfriend (who is in the painting) is an emergency veterinarian and works a lot of nights, which is what inspired the piece.
