I took the photo for this painting about two weeks ago. I had just arrived at the gym for my workout and I saw this morning sky. I took a quick photo and went in for my torture. I did this initial color study at the gallery about a week ago. I think yellow needs to be introduced in the center of interest more. Anyway this is a study of many.
Commerce is beautiful in deep fog. I was headed home one Monday and saying my goodbyes to family. This fog surrounded the landscape. I took a few shots from my car on the way to see one of my sisters. This represents two of my favorite things in a scene fog and hay bales. This type of scene and weather makes me feel cozy. I have to give a shout out to my two sisters. One has a birthday and the other has finished chemotherapy both are very strong women.
This is a small plein air painting done out in Pam's garden. I was working on creating mystery in a painting by leaving things inferred but not stated. I'm working on thinking more about making a painting as opposed to copying what's in front of me. I am currently sketching every day. I want to catch a bus this weekend just to draw people.
