MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR

Just want to say Happy Holidays t all.. I will try to post but with family, friends and all coming and going, it could be a challenge.. I will be doing my other love and that's cooking, I get lost in sauces and making my own rubs to put on roasts, chickens alike.. Steaming or roasting veges and tasting new cheeses and parring them with a wine and sharing with all cuts in one's studio time but that is OK as January will roll up on us all soon enough... So! For now I bed you ado and who knows I might surprise you and myself with a painting before this year is out....

HAVE A SAFE AND MERRY
AND REMEMBER THE EARTH AND ALL THAT SHARE HER

"BOBBLE HEAD AT 2:32 AM"

Funny how somethings catch your eye, particularly when your tiered and you can just set back , leave the driving to a stranger, with no obligation to make small conversation to no conclusion. This is just one of those moments. I was caught by the abstraction of the rain, mist, and condensation on the windshield of my ride to the hotel. Sleepily and happily I was able to let my mind drift to the nondescript humming of the driver. After a time of just staring at the bobble head I knew, here is my next painting. Putting my camera up to an already blurry eye , I click off one shot just in time as my ride ends pulling up to the hotel and long awaiting sleep.

"TAXI"

I think this was more difficult t photo then to paint.... My painting is more painterly in nature than how this photo looks, that being said, the painting is in fact, better then my photo.... So there you have it... Why I needed to make this clear was and is for me alone.... Maybe I'm breathing in to much fumes of turpentine after all these years.... The bottom line is, this was a fun painting to do... Oil on archival board mounted on a 6x6 inch deep varnished box. (Sold)

"MY ALLEY"

Tones, shapes and texture, that is what I wanted in this.. A time gone by, a place to remember or recall.. I find that most of us have seen or been or new of alleyways, small streets, quiet times, safe moments from the past... I have to add more to this, thanks to my artist friend Cara Romero... The alley's are almost gone from us. House's are squeezed in with walls, no porches, garages in the front with remotes so none of us get to wave and say "Hello" gone are the games that where played in the alley's.. I miss my alley.. 6x6 inch, oil, deep wooden varnished box. Holiday price, $125in the USA. (Sold)

I wanted to return to still-life painting and at the same time keep my sky paintings as a recurring theme. I thought. "Why not paint the still-life casting a shadow on the sky".
