"So Many Choices"

9 x 12"

oil on masonite


I don't usually offer larger paintings on eBay - this one was somewhat of an experiment in technique. My aim was to stay loose, magnify the colors and see how to get the point across with less brushwork. I started off too nitpicky right off the bat - so I flipped the board upside down, grabbed a wide brush and followed the shapes, rather than the details. It's a good exercise that can drive you insane, but you'd be surprised what your brain can do.

This late night scene is from a Bruster's in Tucker, Georgia.

I really love all your work. I took Carol Marine's Santa Fe workshop and had seen your work before, but did not subscribe to your blog till recently. The effect you get with darks and lights is just astounding. I can't wait to try another night scene myself. Haven't done one in a long time, but oddly enough the last one I did I had to turn it upside down, too, isn't that funny!
