I tried to get a closer shot without the restaurant furniture. I painted these pieces in 2011 about when I was really getting back into the groove and painting a lot. I think they are about 30x40 inch canvases. I love painting bigger pieces, they are so much fun.The more canvas the more space to express and develop the work as well as get physically into it.
Lately, almost every weekend, we work on home improvement projects. But, yesterday we decided to take the day off and go out and play. We took our little 4x4 machine out into the forest and on the county roads to explore. It was such a beautiful, sunny, warm day. We saw a little bit of wildlife- a deer and a coyote. We stopped for lunch along this river. It couldn't have been more perfect.
Speaking of big paintings... here is a new piece I started yesterday morning before we left on our adventure. It is a 36x48 inch canvas. I know it will evolve many times before it is finished. I look forward to the process and to see what takes shape.
