Taking the long road home...

This is 12 x 24 composition and a variation in the cloud formations of an earlier painting I did of the same subject. I like both compositions and really can not say I feel one is better than the other... just different.

The Long Road Home

Size is 12 x 12 oil on canvas. I really did enjoy painting this one... besides glass my other favorite thing to paint is sky... I enjoy trying to get the feeling of depth and the illusion of reflective light... I may paint this same subject in a longer format... maybe 12 x 24... give it a different perspective .

Season to taste

Well, I seem to have this "thing" about glass once again. I think that painting the two marble pieces a few weeks ago got me all stirred up again. Not sure why I enjoy painting glass so much but I sure do. So I grabbed my salt and pepper shakers and put them in my shadow box and lit them up!! This is what resulted. Size is 12 x 12.

I know I know... so this isn't loose and painterly... I just could not make myself paint this any other way than what I did. It just called for detail and as I put in a little detail it called for MORE!!! So I just went with what I felt was called for and I really have no regrets. I will just have to go loosey-goosey on the next one. (maybe) size is 12 x 12 oil on canvas

Hello Sunshine

I decided the first of the year that I was going to paint a few pieces in a looser or more painterly style than I usually paint. I got a little side tracked with the last two marble pantings as I find it impossible to paint a marble loose!! So here is Hello Sunshine.... in what I hope is the loose style I was striving for. I am going to do a few more this way and see if it starts to become more natural for me... I may be fighting a losing battle.
