Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad, Feliz Natal



Merry Christmas all!

This piece "Dos Amigos" is a 6x8 that I painted while in Mexico recently. I was painting the very hard to make out arches and the people in them when these two guys sat down right in front of my view. So I said to myself " gimme a minute and Ill make you a star" (OK I didn't say that but it comes to mind now..?.) I switched out panels and they stayed just long enough to get this sketch in.. its random and I like it..

SOooo in the spirit of Christmas.. or Kwanzaa or Hanukkah... the first person to comment that they would like this painting ... Can have it for free, no charge, Gratis. The only rule is you must be in the U.S. or be coming to the U.S. sometime soon because shipping ain't cheap.

News: I will go into details more in the future but already lined up for next year is three shows in February. One more at Tidemark Gallery, the same gallery I had my first show at last year. (wow what a year..?.) The Tidemark show will be a two man show, Ralph Bush and I with our Monhegan Island work. Two shows that include the Mexico work, one at Addison Art Gallery and the other at the Cape Cod Museum of Art. Its gonna be crazy...

Quote: "The aura given out by a person or object is as much a part of them as their flesh. The effect that they make in space is as bound up with them as might be their colour or smell ... Therefore the painter must be as concerned with the air surrounding his subject as with the subject itself. It is through observation and perception of atmosphere that he can register the feeling that he wishes his painting to give out." Lucien Freud, 1954.
