A Little Sunshine


This is a little 6x8 study from the yard, Buddha painted it in late day sun. I have always been inspired by impressionist color work especially mid late Monet and Henry Hensche. Their search for the actual color and dedication to representing the actual truth of light, leaves me in awe every time I review their work.
With the show just ????? 22 days away I am thinking my initial goals for 30 new works might be reachable but a few will definitely be wet on the wall! I have a full range of pcs ready from 5"x5" to 30"x40" and have gone thru more paint then I thought possible, 4 and 5 oz tubes feel like 37 ml tubes used to. I have to admit painting larger pieces has been a blast, they eat paint, but being able to move a large brush full of paint is a rewarding experience in itself (try it!).
I will be showing my new work on here when the show starts but for now its just sketches and small works.

Hey Kyle, I do have a couple surprises but luckily my photo work is so awful, alot of my work will "really" be seen for the first time haha (well outside my house) I will hopefully have some photos of the opening on here for everyone that can't make it. Thanks for stopping by.
