It isn't really easy for me to choose what to paint every day, but once I have a path or theme, I'm on it. Like this series A to Z - I have no idea when I start my day and proceed to browse the thousands of photos I've taken for years until I zero in on a couple of possibilities. Then I think which one do I have the desire to tackle today. This series makes me think, it forces me to paint faster and looser and I play with different formats and use panels I've set aside for a long time. All a good thing.
From the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, years ago, when 'Tiber' was loaned from the Louvre.
I'm back to painting in my spankin' clean studio - with this new addition to my series A to Z. I played with a different technique, using a white ground rather than black, painting different values of a grey-umber then scratching and washing and wiping out areas. I love it.
From the industrial district outside of Seattle, Washington.
I loaded on the paint with a palette knife for texture and richer color - very fun to do and good practice. My palette is empty and that's a sign to take a break and give my studio a good spring cleaning and watch some baseball. Preferably with a hot dog. I'll be back soon with the rest of the series.
A new addition to my series A to Z- a Ballpark hot dog with mustard and relish, just the way I like it.
