June 30 -
It is the end of the month, and 178 paintings so far this year... I hope you're enjoying them! Sometimes I just have to paint things, and other times the painting subject eludes me, and i need to go search for it. Tonight was a compromise--I had images in my head, and sorting through reference material, came up with an old B/W of a plowing match, on one of those foggy days. This needs a bit more work, but I'm happy with it so far. It is a 10 x 20 canvas, so it is also a bit larger than most dailies. You'll see the "fixed" one replacing this one in a few days.
I do have a couple of commissions coming up (Kim, yours!!) and want to spend some time on them... but not until after this weekend! Family's coming over on Sunday, and I have to hunt down the dust bunnies, and even throw a pot and pan around the kitchen. Cleaning the pool was no problem, because the water is 90, and the air was just a bit above that. Nice!
