"Early Retirement"

6 x 6"

oil on masonite


As I was squirting out a new palette of oils, I realized just how many tubes were close-to if not empty. I guess it's time to hit the art store - a rather happy way to start off a new year.

It is, indeed, refreshing to paint objects after a long stretch of doing mostly figurative pieces. The majority of the time, I paint from where I've been - forgetting to appreciate those simple things that surround me.

Beautiful, solid composition! I love your color handling and use of values to make the painting work. Well done.
