This painting is another of going back in and doing this and that better known as "tweaking". I must say, in doing so I got to revisit the memories of this trip and the "FREE HBO" For me it was a shoe-in spotting that sign after a really long drive, besides, I had to stop to see if I could get circulation back into my legs... :) The painting is a 6x6" oil painted on a 1.5" deep varnished wooden box: $135 (SOLD)

Revisiting this painting I added a few things for me.. Why would I do that.. Because I can...
So many times, to many times I look at a painting that I thought was finished, after all I signed it, moved on as I would like to think, but NO! I have to go and tweak it just a little.. Oh! the madness of it all. This painting, at this point is finished and is a 6x8" painted on a 1.5" varnished wooden box: $140 (Sold)

Fallowing a long forgotten path I came to a clearing that opened up to the grasslands. If not for the breeze that gently blew across the grasses making soft rustling sounds there would be no sound at all.
Lazy clouds drifted in slow-motion as I painted this sine inside my head. As an artist I find I am always painting, breaking things down, mixing colors, highlighting here, deep shadows there, the process never really goes away, rarely do I just look at something without thinking of composition and the many ways of painting it.... Maddening at time but what am I to do... This painting is 6x6" painted on a 1.5" varnished wooden box with no framing required.
