Me and Tiff (re-shot)
I asked Larry at Fine Art Printing to reshoot these portrait paintings of Tiff and I, because my shots didn’t accurately represent the originals. As you can see below, the new shots are much better.
Thanks a bunch Larry & Tim. Glad to have your help.
Boredom leads to creativity. This small painting of my girls was made from a photo I took of them toward the end of summer 2018, after complaining about being bored.
I’ve posted some of the progress shots on my Instagram and Facebook page.
It’s hot, humid, very bright. Keep moving. Almost to the top. There’s an offshoot with shade. If only these damn horseflies would leave me alone.
This is one narrative I consider when thinking about my latest acrylic landscape painting titled, “Rocky Climb.”
Rocky Climb, like a lot of my paintings, is not based on a real place. It’s a fabricated daydream I explored for fun, through trial and error, and months of pushing paint around.
I enjoy painting imaginary landscapes because it reveals more about me than if I were to paint what’s in front of me. On the surface, Rocky Climb expresses the beauty I find in organic forms, and rugged environments. However, when looking a little deeper, this painting suggests that I have more hill to climb before I feel accomplished or satisfied. Therefore, this painting says a lot about my inability to appreciate where I am at the moment. I guess I should work on that.
