I'll Tell You No Lies


So here's the big one I sent off today. I started it months ago, and then sat on it for a while. It just wasn't working for me, yet there were things I liked about it. You artists out there know how that works! I like it now. It has that blend of realism and painterly abstraction that is my current direction. I'm finding restaurants, cafes, and musical venues to have that ambiguous lighting that allows you to experiment freely with shapes and color, yet maintain some level of believability

And So Begins the Day


I haven't posted in the longest time! We have been busy with a remodel on an apartment building we bought- and other stuff. When I've had a chance to paint, I've been working on bigger paintings. The daily painting regimen seems to have gone by the wayside. I will have to change the name of my blog. My paintings have all of a sudden started "flying off the shelves" at Edward Montgomery Fine Arts in Carmel. Fluke or trend? I don't know, but he needs replacements. This is one I painted last week. I also finished a 30x48 one that I started months ago but couldn't seem to complete to my satisfaction. I think I like it now. I'll post it soon.
