North Leverett Road

I've started using round brushes; they seem to soften the edges easily but I can still get straight lines when I want them.  Oil on canvas and done with reference to a pen/ink drawing I did this past spring.

Summer Work

I have been quiet here for a long time but as the waning days of summer have my attention, for some reason I feel like getting back to this.  So, studio time has been frequent and I have been busy otherwise in art making and marketing activities as well as the work of having to find work-work to "underwrite" my art-work.  I've had some success with making pictures and fair amount of frustration while trying to work some paintings out too but mostly a pleasant, rewarding summer.
In early June I did some abstracted work on rough surfaced foam board using graphite, gouache, pastel, charcoal and watercolor.  They were fast and fun to do.  A few examples are included here.
I'll post images of some oil successes (my opinion), unfinished pieces, frustrations and some drawings later this week.
