"Borderline"

6 x 6"
oil on masonite
sold

I feel like I've been painting too tight lately. It's tension I suppose. So this morning, I vowed to keep it looser, more painterly. This is a good scene to tackle - not wanting to paint every stick or every blade of grass - I started it much different than the usual. And just when I thought I'd wipe it all off and start over, it started to work.

From Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

I think you've definitely accomplished that in this painting. That was the first thing I thought of when I saw it, ... before reading your comment. It's very nice!
