6"x 8" oil on canvas, SOLD
I've taken a week off from painting and posting every day to ponder the direction my paintings have taken lately. I'm making a real effort to loosen up--it's so easy for me to get caught up in painting every little detail when, in fact, what I'm most interested in is capturing the essence of the subject. The challenge of completing a painting every day, or even most days, all too often means relying on painting in my comfort zone rather than pushing it to the next level. So these new images are my effort to shake it up a bit. Feel free to leave your comments!
