Two Sketches from Yesteryear





Hellooooo, these are a couple of my slightly successful sketches from this past year, both were painted in "madman" fashion with paint flying trying to capture a little more of an impression. Also both were painted from around 15- 20 minute poses, maybe 10 min on the figure..?.
This Wednesday will be two weeks out from the show at Tidemark Gallery, the name of the show will actually be the same as this blog, Life from Paint. Someday I will explain why I named this blog that but for today the sun is up and so am I, so I am gonna paint. The weather this week is supposed to be sunny with the temps topping out on Friday at 60!
Quote: "The essential of painting is that something, that 'ethereal glue,' that intermediary product which the artist secrets with all his creative being and which he has the power to place, to encrust, to impregnate into the pictorial stuff of the painting."Yves Klein (1928--1962).
