End of Day Image Blast
Sometimes I will be standing around the studio and flash on an idea that I just have to paint now. That happened yesterday just as I was cleaning up and preparing to leave the studio. My eye landed on a small canvas ( I had painted over a painting ) and all of a sudden I saw how a photo I had taken would work so well on that background and actually saw in my mind's eye how the painting would lay out.
Lately I am doing small studies and then making them into larger canvases, something I never would have had the patience to do in earlier days.
This painting carries the mood of the series I have been working on only with different subject matter.
