Oil on 5x7 gessoed hardboard.
Like many of you, I suppose, I have looked at the work of many, many, talented artists on the internet over the last few years. This has good rewards by showing you what is possible and revealing many things you've never thought of. Techniques and styles galore!
The downside for me was being slowly removed from being myself. I got the feeling that emulation was controlling my painting. So, with that in mind, I dug back and found one of mine that I liked from '06. I painted a loose copy...different crop etc.
The color choices are more intuitive and invented. I don't want to produce a copy of nature or a photograph. I want to produce a piece of art...a painting. At least that's how I feel today. Tomorrow- who knows??
