6x6, oil on gesso panel, $75.00
As a daily painter an important issue is having things I want to paint. It is not always easy. A matter of fact is can be down right hard. I get tired of subjects. It is a daily search for new subjects and possible series work. I spend lots of time taking photos along with looking them over and over to see if I see something that i did not see before.
In my file I have taken lots of out the window shots on our drives up to San Jose State getting or delivering my son. I look at these shots all the time. I love clouds and fear painting them. The sky is so beautiful at times and clouds, so formless and constantly moving, difficult to get down in oil. So here I am finally working on some I love dearly with hopes of doing such magnificence justice.
