Flowers In The Breeze
Old Barn On A Winter Night
Time In A Bottle
Here are a few studies I have done this week .. Friday 6 - Friday 13.
All are 11 x 14 inches oil on paper .. alla prima .. all painted on dates from the 6th
to the 13th. Had a few more but they didn't make the cut.
My focus shifts from study to study.
Flowers In The Breeze was about composition and representing something in the breeze. You never see it all, you just see a
movie of blur and some deeply saturated spots of the home color of the flowers.
Old Barn On A Winter Night was about subdued light such as moon light on the snow.
Time in a Bottle was the result of thinking that if people were to react to a bad ellipse
of a bottle or whatever, then why not magnify the bad then they will not react to it
as it's so bad it has to be right. So was born the idea and then the idea was painted.
Dear John was the result of further thought on forget about the bad and reinforce it
it you see it and it bothers you. I had it more badly warped but got timid. However, Dear John did have
a quality of life and so it lives in my file.
