i found this painting buried in my studio from a year ago.....for some reason i did not get around to posting this.....it is interesting to see how much we change in that amount of time, as far as how we see things and apply paint.........the weather is cold again here.....this means still life will be the ruler for a few more days or weeks......or maybe an enlargement of plein air study

8x10 oil on canvas panel......275.00.......getting ready for still life classes coming up.....there is a real glow about the photo, i think'....did not capture that particular aspect, because i believe it would take more blending and detailed brush strokes....i am striving for a more impressionistic look which i think is fun....haven't quite reached the look i am striving for

this is what i had when i left the field...i was not happy with the colors....thought they were too dull, so i worked in the studio and used a little of my artistic license and ended up with the painting below....do you think i should have left it alone? ....tell the truth.....i need some input!......actually, after looking at the one below, i can see the impression of an old car in front of the dark bush to the right.....maybe i will post another with an old car added....have i been painting alone for too long over Christmas?....

8x10 oil on canvas panel.....even though it would be nice to tell you i painted every day this week, i have to confess, these are paintings from oct and nov, that i did not have time to post.............this outing was a very dreary day....plein air....began to rain just as elsa and i were finishing our last strokes.......abandoned old home between grantville and moreland. ga.
