Taking time to share out the progress in a few oil paintings. While I work with intent and goals the process is always full of welcomed surprises. Followed by the excitement of watching paint dry as it talks to me. Indigo over mauve.  Feathers alive instead uniform. Tenderness in both. One started in 2004 the other in 2008.

No art before its time. Libby Lumpkin once wrote that " the authority of a work of art resides in the richness and complexity of our responses to it." Discover is not a set system.

 "Place Setting" above, "Birds of Paradis" below. Both in oil on canvas. Above canvas board. Below stretched canvas. In the era of quick opinions and digital imaging I still fine excitement in the application of escalating painting and its potential.
