April 24th, 2017. Field in Hurley, NY
The focus will be images of my art and photos, along with brief thoughts on art, life, and technique. I will be working on the blog trying to streamline and build a presence. Once upon a time I had one...but I have long ignored this treasure of stories and images.
I painted outside yesterday, absorbing the freshness of early spring and the earth while seated at the edge of a field, making art and connecting with a few friends. This is an oil sketch on paper. approx 8 x 10. Rather than paint a realistic interpretation, I let the painting take me to where it wanted to go, the rawness of the earth waking up from its long winter sleep.
