Contemporary colorful paintings of fun and figures.
Saturday, October 17, 2015
I decided I needed to thin out my loser box. That is where I put paintings that just aren't right and make me uncomfortable. Using a razor blade I scraped off edges of the brushwork that showed. I did this instead of sanding to reduce dust, and breathing toxic chemicals. Then I painted a solid color over them. A few of the paintings I decided had good enough starts to try and resurrect them, and this was one. Originally I painted it plein air (outside on the spot) but I finished it in the studio letting the painting tell me what to do, instead of looking at a reference photo. I am pretty happy actually with the results. It is a small church in a beautiful and picturesque town in southern Vermont. It is for sale by auction on Daily Paintworks.
