Paint Only

I’ve been doing some paintings that have been intended for several different purposes, and here is a selection.

Two of the pieces are “renovations” of existing paintings; I just felt the need to change them and so I did. As I’ve said before, it’s hard for me to stop making improvements – I tell people I only know when a painting is finished when someone buys it or I give it away – until then it might go through several remakings. In this group the representatives are “Ghost House” and “Just a Sliver of a Street”.

“Hidden Garden” is a new one. I set up out in my yard for a plein air session. I wanted to practice working from the scene because this weekend I will be exhibiting in a show in Easton, PA, and I’ve entered a plein air contest. I plan to paint and/or collage whatever I can see from my booth. I did this event a couple of years ago and actually ended up selling the piece I made. Plus I really enjoyed working to a deadline and with an audience.

So this painting was inspired by my garden. (No one said plein air work had to be realistic, did they?)

The three small ones I painted as a donation for the auction for the Allentown (PA) School District’s Academy of the Arts at William Allen High School.The 8″ x 8″ format was a requirement for the event; I enjoyed working with it.

    Thank you! I think it is a lot better than what was there before and I like the way it turned out. I am determined to keep my hands off it now, I can’t do better, I think.
