Lost the man with the red hat for this - it just seemed like clutter. HERE is the little version.

This image was painted from a photo of a very crowded beach day - there are thousands of paintings in this one photo. Nice place to get lost in and ignore winter out the window

Oh Hello. Remember me?
So, back in the studio with regular hours - hooray!! It is all about time in the studio - my paintings are just not going to paint themselves no matter how I try.
There is a little stack of panels with black gesso just hanging around so this week that is the go-to surface.
The subject - people on the beach - of course.
BUT Ive got the itch to paint bigger more abstract paintings - its really all I want to paint right now and I am even thinking about using acrylics *gasp!* I know? crazy talk right??
Which brings me back to the stash of little black panels - these I will paint a quick little painting to play with composition and to get a feel for the image - a sketch with paint. Not quite as realistic as I used to paint but not all crazy like the paintings in my head.
They will be up for sale through my daily painters page (or email me) and then I'll post the bigger paintings that the little ones inspire. Fun right?
So here is little painting #1 - and fair warning I've got a thing for buckets
