Portrait(s) progress/figure/landscape/Greenfield Gallery

Detail/oil on board/in progress

Pastel on paper/24" x 30"
In progress/oil on canvas/30" x 24"

Ink on paper/14"x 11"

Studio work continues with the occasional outdoor scouting for ideas expanding the inspiration. Actually, I hope to get up to the Green River (next week) and into what I jokingly tell myself is the "deep woods" for some drawing and maybe a few photos and and some watercolors, too.

The Greenfield community welcomed The Greenfield Gallery to Main Street earlier this month and I was delighted when asked if some work could be shown as part of the inaugural exhibit. Thanks to Kate and Rachael for the opportunity and for organizing a wonderful exhibit. Their drive, energy and ideas are fully on display in the newly purposed space and I hope they have continued success.

working on two/comparisons

I feel like I am making progress with these two different as they can be from each other. Loose, tight; color and contrast growing and retreating; planning and acting with quick impulsive gestures; general impression with relaxed hand; Katz and Monet.  Where am I in all of this, I sometimes ask myself.  Moving toward a vision.

Detail-oil portrait on board (in progress)

Detail of 20" x 16" oil on gessobord
Lighting is so important when taking photographs of art work but despite the poor environment for this one it still provides me with information helpful to move this painting along.  Decided to share it here as well.
