Weekly Painting Week 96 Winter Sunrise

Leaving some details undone, this one focuses on the Starkness…Winter is Coming.

Serene Winter sunrise on a path through the mountains. Feel the cold breath in your lungs, see the grasses clinging to life, the promise of the sunrise that Spring will come again.

Weekly Painting Week 93 Black, White, and Grey

torrit grey

Working on a few possibilities in oil using only Black, White, and Gamblin Torrit Grey. I am carving the horses out of the darkness. Those lumps on the beach may turn into dogs… or maybe a lobster, I haven’t decided.

Weekly Painting Week 82 Figure Painting

Capturing emotion, getting proportion right, deciding to go more painterly or more photoreal, choosing a palette.. the reason figure painting is so challenging. This painting is 30 x 40″ so a misstep stands out. Aim small, miss small, I suppose. Lots of layers in the chromatic red, this is an homage to Sibley’s Preparation. Not sure if it is finished..we’ll see.

Weekly Painting Week 73 Black and White Figure- A matter of perspective.

Once at a museum, I watched visitors looking at an abstract painting. They turned their heads left right, then tried to look at the painting upside down. Abstract art is like that- I know there was a huge debate after Morris Louis died, in displaying his work, which side was the top. The below painting seems obvious, but I rotated the image and you know what? I like it in any direction! “Mary Jane” 11 x 14, Oil on heavy paper.
